RE:duce, RE:use, RE:cycle, RE:source - Planet RE:think. See the entire film on demand at Cinecliq, iTunes, or Amazon (see links below).
Today we are facing not one, but two global crises: the financial crisis, and the more insidious one relating to our misuse of natural resources. The two are so tightly linked that we will not solve the global financial crisis until we start re-thinking how we can use resources more efficiently and sustainably. Planet RE:think investigates where we are failing and gives hope to a future on a planet with finite resources.
“Hopefully our film will encourage the world to shift in a new direction, where the individual thinks more about the use of our resources. The way the world works today is simply not sustainable, and over time it will cause even greater problems. However, the good news is, we can change this with relatively simple means and with a new mindset – welcome to Planet RE:think”.

“Rio+20 will be one of the most important global meetings on sustainable development in our time.”
