Environmental films draw thousands in Washington
What did you do when you saw “March of the Penguins“?
Did you leave your empty bucket of popcorn on your movie seat and discuss what a touching movie it was? Or did you put the DVD back into its case and feel good that you were some how a part of nature in a way you never thought possible. I mean, how could you not after seeing that little egg freeze? How fragile life is, right?
But then what? What happends next? Did part of your rental fee or movie tickets go to the the WWF? Or to education? Do your rely on governments to use your money to make good choices on the environment?
Or did you write a letter to your most/least favorite governement official about your opposition to environmental abuse?
Did you buy organic the next day, knowing that you didn’t contribute to pesticide use?
Did you make extra efforts to recycle paper or plactic?
Did you inflate your car tires to get better gas milage?
My point is this. If the movie moves you, move on something. Do something to help save the little buggers in the movie.
Remember “Saving Nemo”? Do you know how many people saw that movie?
Enough to make Clown Fish a very popular item in pet stores. The title of the movie is “Saving Nemo”, not “Buying Nemo for Johnny, putting a strain on the Clown Fish population, only to have the fish die in a tank that isn’t taken care of, to end in a grand finale of a very heart felt flushing down the toilet.”
