stuff iconInteresting video of global consumerism and its effect on the planet. As a gadget-freak, it gave me pause to the impact it has on earth.

stuff graphicThe Story of Stuff shows how much natural resources the US is consuming compared to the world, the short term and long term impact it has, and how it ties into all aspects of our consumerist society.

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.” – Story of Stuff

The website also provides simple, seemingly obvious alternatives to stop the process of waste.

And no, you don’t have to grow long hair, wear hemp clothes and live in a combine.
