Dickinson is focused on Climate Change Needs Behavior Change!

November and December bring us the behavior of Purchasing Consciously. We all make purchase choices regularly; from the electronics we buy, to the clothing we wear, to the gifts we give to loved ones and everything in between. The decisions we make are deeply tied to all facets of sustainability: social, economic and environmental. Every item we consume comes from somewhere and the items we choose have associated carbon emissions, environmental waste and labor practices. Let’s focus on purchasing consciously, making things ourselves and ordering less online!

As individuals we must wrestle with what purchasing consciously means for each one of us. Want to reflect and learn more?

Join us in the Purchase Consciously Film Series and dive into the hidden world behind the products we consume regularly. We will focus on electronics, clothing and the impacts of the extractive industry on indigenous peoples. Our everyday choices are tied to a global market and we have the power to change this system from the comfort of our amazon shopping cart.

Standing on Sacred Ground: Profit and Loss is a film focused on the impacts to the global economy on three different indigenous communities.

Please consider bringing a clothing item to donate to Dickinson’s Free xChange to the film screenings to be entered into a raffle to win a WindRester Self-Inflating Chair, and join us for discussion and reflection.
