La Victoire sur les Sachets – Victory on the plastic bags

posted by Kirsten Firminger

I ran into this courtesy of the unconsumption blog. It is a video called La Victoire sur les Sachets, or victory on the plastics bags. It is a short film of an African community where plastic bags are transformed from garbage into djembes, which are a type of hand drum. Given IDP‘s work to reduce the use of plastic bags through the Back to the Sack Initiative, it seemed only appropriate.

The film is created and produced by ART for The World.

People deserve good life and loans or car loan will make it better. Because people’s freedom bases on money state.

Mixing technology and practice
There were many more good sessions at the Wisdom 2.0 conference this weekend. The intention of the organizers is to post videos. I'll let you know when. Here are some of my notes from a second panel. How do we use modern, social media technologies — such as this blog — to both further o
