The Story of Stuff

I want to share this very interesting website with you.

It's about stuff. Yeah, stuff. Stuff we buy, stuff we use, stuff we consume, stuff we throw away.

What are you doing with all of your stuff?
Do you need all that stuff?

Next time you start to stuff yourself, stop and remember this video!

It's the Story of Stuff!

The heart of the story is that:

Our enormously productive economy...
that we make consumption our way of life
that we convert the buying and use of goods into rituals
that we seek our spiritual satisfaction, our ego satisfaction, in consumption...
We need things consumed, burned up, replaced, and discarded at an ever accelerating rate.

Scary stuff, huh?

Please share this with your friends. It's in little ways like this that we can help save our home, Planet Earth, by raising our consciousness to an eco-consciousness.

Ciao for now!
