(And Happy 24th Birthday to my nephew, Michael! )
In honor of Earth Day, I have a link to an awesome, informative, short video that I believe everyone should watch. It made a big impact on me, and think it could make an impact on everyone who views it.
THE STORY OF STUFF
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. 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.
