The Story of Stuff

We interrupt this cavalcade of music, snarky comments and Vermont happenings to bring you a public service announcement from Annie Leonard and the Tides Foundation.

The Story of Stuff is a twenty minute film addressing the culture of consumerism in the US and the impact that consumerism has on the environment and global community. I think the average Vermonter is in agreement with The Story of Stuff but the film still does a good job of laying out the core issue. You can watch the film here.

If you are already on the anti-consumerism bandwagon and just want to jump to the "Well, what the hell can we do about it?" part of the project, you can find Annie Leonard's ten suggestions here.

Now, back to our usual drivel.
