Environmentally speaking, the casting process
involves a lot of paper consumption: Script sides are handed out
to the auditioning actors, names and numbers are taken; often a
description of the project is handed out, and so on. Our recommendation
here is simple: reuse paper; when printing, use both sides; recycle
the paper as it comes in.
BE WISE AND TAKE YOUR TIME in casting your movie. Consider video
screen tests as you get down to the finalists. Even good actors
may react to the camera in unexpected ways.
Due to the highly mechanized chemical based farming industry
in the U.S., our food choices are increasingly threatened with
chemical residues, reduced nutritional value, over processing,
and synthetic additives.
• Now, in the 1990’s, new technologies threaten
to encroach on our ability to eat natural foods: Food irradiation
and biotechnologically designed meats and vegetables are on
our store shelves without warning labels. There are tomatoes
with fish genes in them, potatoes with chicken genes, and pigs
with human genes in them. All of these innovations serve the
needs of the corporate-owned super farms, not the consumer or
the family farmer.
•Our industrial medical complex seems complicit in its
disregard for the nutritional well-being of U.S. citizens: In
four years of medical study, the average American physician
receives 2.4 hours of training in nutrition.
• You can learn about the food choices you make, and effect
of those choices on your well-being and the planet's.
