And then, don' t you wonder, REALLY wonder where our STUFF comes from and where it ends up?
I was listening to Rosie Radio the other day on Sirius, and she was interviewing the remarkable Annie Leonard - the creator of "The Story of Stuff." Here is what The Story of Stuff project is ALL about, according to her website:
The Story of Stuff Project was founded in June 2008 by Annie Leonard to leverage the remarkable success of The Story of Stuff, a 20-minute web-film that explores the often hidden environmental and social consequences of America’s love affair with its stuff. Currently, the film has been viewed over 10 million times on-line and in thousands of schools, houses of worship, community centers and businesses around the world. Our Project’s focus is on systems of production and consumption—in particular the harmful environmental and social impacts of current modes of producing, consuming and disposing of material goods.
