TUESDAY, JANUARY 15 >>members of the consumer group The Compact

ARE YOU A CONSUMER ADDICT?


On January 1, 2006, a group of nine San Franciscans formed The Compact, vowing not to buy anything new for a year – food, drink, health and safety necessities excluded. American consumerism, they say, has led to global environmental and socioeconomic crises, and the only way to reverse it is to stop buying into it. The Compact has spread to almost nine countries and 2,000 people who borrow, barter or buy used. In the spirit of The Compact, we will be hosting a holiday gift exchange where attendees will get to barter for better and keep their unwanted and unused gifts out of a landfill.


6:00 p.m., Check-in | 6:30 p.m., Program | 7:30 p.m., Wine and Hors d'oeuvres and Gift Exchange Reception | Club office, 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco | $12 for Members, $20 for Non-Members |
