Re teenagers:

The Canadian magazine Alternatives (which Gary Gallon recently announced is
facing extinction after over 20 years of good work) produced a hilarious
cover / poster a few years ago. A cartoon image of a teenager decked out
in all the obligatory name-brand clothes and possessions, standing in front
of a mall. The heading:

"The landfill begins here."

I got the same call from the Canadian Earth Day organizing people, and have
been unable to respond. It is SO hard to preach to teenagers.
