This is so awesome. Check out Annie Leonard's The Story Of Stuff. The perfect educational springboard for both young and old alike regarding consumerism and its impact on you, me and our one and only planet Earth.
The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.
It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
If I were president I'd make sure The Story Of Stuff was shown to every student in every school in every country.
But I'm not the president and I'm just as tired as everyone else as far as waiting on the government to Change and fix things so I guess it's up to everyone reading this to share this, plant the seed and start thinking about not only where all this stuff comes from , but where it all goes when we throw it away.
If we really want to Change things, watching and sharing The Story Of Stuff is a step in the right direction.
