The Story of Stuff

I found this video that is pretty interesting and lays out some great facts on consumption, consumerism, and waste.  When you have a free 22 minutes, check it out.  It's just another reminder to both buy and waste responsibly and to be aware of the effects our consumerism has on the environment.

Jon -So true, the example of the computer's internal "stuff" really hit home for me. Thanks for putting this on your blog for our awareness. -mom

i watched this earlier and tried to spread the word, but the people who really needed to see it just could not focus their attention for 20 minutes. you are probably the only other person i know (besides my mom) who got the idea.

Ah, the Story of Stuff! Great find, Jon. My friend Lea showed me this awhile ago and I totally forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder... this is really good to internalize and stay aware of.
