A world obsessed with “stuff”

Thanksgiving is nearly here. If you’re reading this post, this likely makes two simultaneous, possibly-panic-filled thoughts jump into your head: (1) how am I EVER going to get all of my outlining done?; and (2) time to get the ball rolling on holiday gift shopping [and possibly (3): how can I have a delicious, meat-free Thanksgiving].

As you begin thinking about consuming, Annie Leonard at The Story of Stuff Project has made a new short film about the environmental impacts of the electronics which fill our lives: The Story of Electronics.  You can check it out below.


And if you are looking for some holiday gifts that are not planned for obsolescence, be sure to check out the Handmade Cavalcade (featuring local, handmade gifts) on December 5 in NoLita, and the great assortment of recycled gifts available at Uncommon Good.com.
