My friend turned me on to this website: www.storyofstuff.com. It gives a quick and sobering summary of where all our STUFF comes from. Our “designed for disposal” economy, the toxins we make, the labor injustices, our overconsumption, and the methods of disposal are all terrible. Please watch it, decide on what action you can take, and forward it on! Especially to anyone who doesn’t “get” the issues of sustainability and justice that we’re facing. Our system is in crisis!
