    Bill continues to find and interview a most interesting cast of characters. Very entertaining. The Chief-of-Police last week and this week, “America’s most wanted”, Tim DeChristopher.

      Hello Tim,I found your story very interesting. I just wcethad an Arte programme talking about consumerism and minimalism and saw your story. Curiously, I checked your website and I would like to say that I find some similitudes between you and me. I am also coming from a business background in Paris, but I am now studying sustainability in London.All my work is now based upon environmental issues, eco-feminism and globalisation.My partner believes in non-consumerism and thought me how to not buy over and over.I have to say that sometimes it is hard (I have a visual passion for the books and make the collection since the first one that I read) but I am going to the right direction.I buy all my clothes in charity shops and give them to the same shops after a while, so I reckon that it creates a sort of cycle where everyone can enjoy diversity and recycling.Please, do email me if you think that you can give me some advices about consumerism or articles that could interest me.Bravo again for your initiative,Caroline Derveaux-Berte9
