Flow: Water Privatization - Full Documentary (video)
How Did A Handful of Corporations Steal Our Water? "Can Anyone Really Own Water?" Water is the very essence of life, sustaining every being on the planet. The movie, 'FLOW' confronts the disturbing reality that our crucial resource is dwindling and greed just may be the cause.
Irena Salina's award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century — The World Water Crisis. Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.
Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question "CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?" Beyond identifying the problem, 'FLOW' also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround. Film is 1-1/2 hours in length. The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard (video) Give and get free stuff

Their website claims that Goodwill dumps about 80% of the items that are donated there. If that is accurate, we are often just sending stuff to the landfill with a brief stopover at Goodwill. With Givmo, you know someone will use the item. At the time of this posting, the charity of the month was the Human Society of the US. For only the cost of shipping, the goodies offered included a pair of Rossignol skis, an electronic scale, an ergonomic keyboard, a DSL router, a Nikon film camera, a baseball mitt, a foot massager, 5 editions of Chicken Soup For Everyone, and Bob Dylan Chronicles Vol. 1.
