Wear something out of style day

First, watch this 20 minute, easy to understand, eye opening video called The Story of Stuff.

Then, participate with me, on Monday June 1st by wearing something out of style, to counteract "perceived obsolescence". We are tricked into throwing out stuff that is perfectly good. Lets bring to light the fact that our "value" in this society is greatly based on our ability to consume. That is not what our purpose on this earth is for! Make a statement that says you do not want to participate in this cycle of over consumption any more! So on June 1st, join me in wearing something old and out of style. Tell people that it is "wear something out of style day" and the purpose is to question the perception that our value in this society lies in our ability to consume.
