Today I thought I would share this video with you all called The Story of Stuff. The video and the book really opened my eyes over a year ago to seeing how unnecessary so many of my purchases were and that I was buying so much stuff that I didn’t even need but was brainwashed into thinking I did by the media and advertising. Today, we always buy second hand first and if we are buying anything new we make a point to ask ourselves if it is a real need. If it isn’t, we don’t buy it.
We have to start thinking about what impact our constant consumption is having on our beautiful planet. I don’t know about you but I want my children (and theirs) to have a clean and healthy one! 🙂
