New Film Slams Wal-Mart: "Going Big Box vs. Going Local" [VIDEO]

'Tis the season for consumption. We should work on that. But in the meantime, if you have to buy something for your loved ones, why not think about where you shop?

This new film by Amy Wolf, a Movement Vision Lab Film Fellow in 2007, follows one woman on a shopping quest — as we learn about the consequences at every turn. Please forward it to your family and friends and keep these lessons in mind as you're stocking up on stuff!

UPDATE: This film was selected for the 2008 Sonoma Environmental Film Festival. Go Amy!
