Trashy Novel

Sometimes there is so much going on around us that it is difficult to know where to begin so we can make a difference. This video by Good.is offers a solution of sorts. It is done using an extended visual metaphor - a young man buries himself away in a novel only to be bombarded by the trash produced by others. He carries on reading his novel but only after doing something small - and useful - with what he finds around him.

The message is pretty clear - we can all do something to help the environment only if it is in a small way. By taking a little time out we can help clear up the mess made by ourselves and others in ways that will both reduce the trash pile and make something new out of it. Recycling is an old message, but this short movie does it in a new and original way. Bravo.
