The Broken Model of Manufacturing

October 5, 2010

The Story of Stuff is an excellent project headed up by Annie Leonard that shows how we exploit the earth based on a manufacturing model of unsustainable consumerism. I first learned of it through one of my clients who is looking to green up her products even more.

Her original video, which you can view here,  quickly went viral. It’s now even got subtitles in eleven other languages. In other films, she offers thoughts about what’s actually in cosmetics, plastic bottles and more. Plus, she has an entire school curriculum to teach kids how to be less consume-oriented. You can visit www.storyofstuff.org for more details.

Here’s an intro to Annie’s work and future plans as well. She is about living the power of slow on a very granular level. Join me as we share with the world that it is easier to live without all this stuff!
