The Kink in the Link: A Role-Playing Game on How What We Buy Connects Us to Others

Did you ever wonder who picked the cantaloupe you had for breakfast? Or what happens to your cell phone when you get a new one? In this interactive session, participants will contemplate the chain of consumption that brings the products we buy into our lives and disposes of them when we are done with them. Then using a little bit of research and a lot of imagination, we will think about ways that those products connect us ethically to the lives of others across our town, our country and the globe. And we will discuss how choices we can make as consumers right now can start to make a difference.
