The Story of Stuff

From: Amy Hilligoss

 

While it has been quietly inactive for the past year, the work of the green team has continued with the implementation of many of our suggestions in our own lives and workplaces.  Several of us now have recycling boxes under our desks.  I make regular trips to the MET to drop off my paper, glass, metal and plastics.  Some of us have even given reusable bags as gifts for holidays and birthdays to each other and our families and friends – how cool is that?  But, as we all know, that is not enough.  The planet isn’t getting healthier (and neither are we) simply because we put a cardboard box in the way of our feet.  So now what?

 

For those of you who have not yet seen it, this 20 minute video is an eye opener.  It is educational and helps you to just stop and think about the bigger picture.  So, I ask you to take a portion of your lunch break or an evening or weekend and just watch this quick piece.  http://www.storyofstuff.com/
