Learn How and Why Your Stuff Ends Up In The Landfill: The Story of Stuff
Posted Feb 19 2009 5:32pm
This week I was sent by a friend to view a powerful online movie called "The Story of Stuff." It was 20 minutes long, which I thought was horrid - in a very busy world I rarely have time for a 20 minute movie, particularly during the work day.
My decision was to watch half the movie while I ate lunch, and see if was worth continuing. An hour later I had watched the movie in its entirety TWICE - it turned out to be one of the most powerful and thought-provoking green experiences I have had in a long time.
Below is a brief 52 second teaser to the show which gives you a surprising look into the world of where all our stuff goes that we use every day - from natural resource to product to retail to landfill. Most of the information provided I knew, but had not examined and understood the complete process of how all that stuff worked.
Whether you choose to agree or disagree with "The Story of Stuff," I hope that you will watch it and think about the importance that each and ever person and all our stuff has on the planet. How about you start with ten minutes at lunch and see where it goes? Go to www.storyofstuff.com and get started.
