The Story of Stuff

Someone showed me this awesome video, it’s actually part of a whole site, like David Suzuki’s Nature Challenge, on how to live green and how to make a real difference in this increasingly consumerist society.

Look at the teaser bellow, or simply go to to check the whole video. It’s about 20 minutes long but it’ll make you think a lot. Seriously, check it out.

  1. that link/video is incredible. i mean, individually i kinda knew all about what she was talking about, but her presentation of the material is just perfection. thanks for the link… i’ll be spreading that one around. so on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being a consumer whore) where do you fit in? i think i’m a 4.

  2. Hey lefty,
    yeah that’s a good question. I’d say that I am a 5. I do my share of recycling/reusing and I tend to think twice before buying things… but I also know that I am easily tempted to get the new gadgets from time to time and am still very attracted to well designed computer things (like iPods). It’s difficult to evaluate because I just don’t know how wasteful people can be… you know what I mean? I know I can do much more than what I do at the moment though – hence the five.
    By the way, i agree with the video. the design of the whole thing is just superb. I’m glad you enjoyed the link.
