Reduce your Consumption of Petroleum

How about a more effective boycott?

Reduce your consumption of petroleum.

If you want to boycott Bush, conglomerates and multinational corporate hegemony the best thing we could do is free ourselves of our fossil fuel dependency. Buying Citgo doesn't address our dependency on fossil fuels and our over-consumption. If the people of the world consumed like Americans we would need seven earths to sustain us //www.chelseagreen.com/2004/items/limitspaper . Also, by consuming more than our share, it means we need to take resources from other nations - which leads to conflict, war and inequity.

Good boycotts:

Drive less (yes, we might as well fill up at Citgo as we wean ourselves from our cars)

Shop at family owned businesses instead of chain stores

Boycott items packaged in throw-away plastic containers - buy bulk items and re-use your containers. Plastic is made from petroleum, and it never decomposes - it just breaks into smaller and smaller pieces and pollutes our land, ourselves and most notably our oceans.

Buy locally produced goods as much as possible

Consume less
