A Story About Our Environment And All The ‘stuff’ In Our Lives

We all know that consumerism in the US is epic, but are you aware of the lifecycle of the ‘stuff’ that we buy? During this past Holiday, my daughter Caroline, introduced me to The Story of Stuff. It’s a 20-minute video that, in a very clever format, offers an explanation of the global impact of our “shop till you drop” culture. Now that the Holiday events of shopping and eating are over, many of us are surrounded by boxes of ‘new stuff.’ I hope you will find this video to be thought provoking. Though I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the statistics presented, I can say that the message is right on target! To watch the video, go to: www.storyofstuff.com.
