generation Y revisited

*LOL* Now - hold off your horses and your chariots of war - whoa...!!!
I am not going to bash the poor youths again - not today anyway! ;)
Rather - give them some helpful tips...
WHY? (Get it? "Y"... WHY... ha. ha. ha. I know... too easy. I can do mucho better than that - but I have no time for it now - so this will do!).
Because... they need all the help/guidance/tips they can get... right?
But I digress...

Thus...
See how today's youth can impact the planet!

I just know you will be less skeptical than I am about it all...
Blessings!

We ask you to check out: ibuydifferent.org
WHY?
Young people are a growing consumer force. Youth purchases amounted to $170 billion last year, almost double the $99 billion this age group spent in 1994. Generation Y is the largest age group since the Boomers: along with their size comes unprecedented discretionary spending and influence.

What if they were to use this buying power on stuff that's better for the environment?

The Center for a New American Dream and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have teamed up to reach youth at this pivotal moment with a "Be Different, Live Different, Buy Different—Make a Difference" campaign. This campaign engages youth in consumer actions such as choosing currently available environmentally friendly products, as well as advocating for more options.

For today's daily action, check out ibuydifferent.org, today!
 
The above, btw, comes from a site that CARES about the planet... ask me privately for the link - if you do care at all...!!!

But really... I would be remiss if I did not add the following...

"Young people are a growing consumer force.
OH MY GOD - RUN FOR YOUR LIVES, OLD-TIMERS...!!!

Youth purchases amounted to $170 billion last year, almost double the $99 billion this age group spent in 1994.
ORWELL HAD IT WRONG THEN - IT WAS NOT 1984 BUT REALLY 1994 THAT WAS TO BE - THE BEGINNING OF THE END! *LOL*

Generation Y is the largest age group since the Boomers: along with their size comes unprecedented discretionary spending and influence.

DISCRETIONARY... RIGHT. DISCRIMINATING CUSTOMERS... ARE THEY? ONLY IN THE WORST SENSE, LIKELY... AS FOR THEIR INFLUENCE... I PITY THE MANUFACTURER OF GOODS WHO CATERS TO THIS FICKLE CROWD... SELLS WILL BE... INCONSISTENT IN ALL LIKELIHOOD!

THEY ARE TAKING AFTER THEM BABYBOOMERS THEN... GOODIE. A FINE MESS THAT LAST GROUP LEFT US TOO... AND THIS ONE WILL DO WHAT... MAKE IT MESSIER?

AND MY GENERATION IS CAUGHT IS BETWEEN... GREATER AND GREATER... YEP...
