Do The Right Thing (#1707H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Each year, Burt and his film crew travel around the world making programs for Public Television and in the process, they spend a considerable amount of money. How they decide to spend those funds and how you decide to spend yours can have a powerful effect on government and corporate policy. In this program, Burt teams up with JUST Capital, a non-profit organization that works with Forbes Magazine to find out what are the issues Americans care about and which companies reflect those values. What Burt learned changed his views on destinations, airlines, hotels, restaurants, and where he shops. It could do the same for you.
