The Story of Stuff

This woman is an ex-Greenpeace employee and she's put together a nifty animated video outlining the toxic effects of our consumer society. This is amazing--takes an expansive holistic view of our entire consuming/waste cycle--but takes only 20 minutes to watch. You'll be mesmerized. Make your kids watch, too (if they haven't already made you watch). She includes a lot of straightforward, unvarnished facts of why our consumption stream is so damn full of toxins.

Makes me feel that I need to do more than just turn to post-consumer places (Salvation Army) for my clothes. We need to rethink our whole way of life!

Oh, and plus it's put out by the same folks who brought us the Meatrix. Click here.
