Juliet Schor on Using the Internet to “Save the Planet” [AUDIO]

November 16th, 2010

In the sustainability community, both activists and practitioners are increasingly turning to the internet to foster new lifestyles, consumption patterns and ways of producing. There has been an explosion of web-enabled innovations around consumption sharing and extra-market exchange in order to reduce footprint.
