Saving The Planet, One Tote Bag At A Time

This year SXSW made an effort to go green.
In that case, I hope everyone finds something creative to do with the ephemera that filled the 25,000 tote bags they handed out to the festival-goers.
Here is a sampling of the contents, spread out on my hotel bed.

Mainstream music biz (four companies control about 80% of the biz) - what a waste. They take plastic music, put it on a plastic disc, put it in a plastic cd case, and that's not enough - they wrap it in plastic wrap. Then clerk says 'want a bag for that?" Time for a revolution in the arts!
