1000 Flowers for the Planet - #556 Download Movies
Your favourite movies are also on disc and just as explained in Flower #555, they are made of plastic and precious metals. If we were to save our precious metals for more interesting things like jewellery, then preventing silver from being used for the creation of discs would go a long way to having more beautiful things in our lives. To avoid buying DVDs, download your movies, ensuring you pay for them and it is completely legal. Just as musicians want to get paid, all the wonderful people who create movies to entertain us also want to be paid for their creativity and hard work. When you download movies instead of buying DVDs you keep people employed and support their work, you get to enjoy the entertainment and you declutter your home at the same time. How good is that? Furthermore, you also help save the planet by reducing the need to pull finite resources out of the earth, saving all the energy required to get the resources and turn them into goods, and preventing stuff going into landfill. It’s such a good idea, maybe they should make a movie about it!
