Being Green: The Story of Stuff

I struggle with my desire to be more environmentally friendly and my need for comfort and well, stuff.  I also do daily battle with all the stuff in my  house.... I wouldn't have to spend so much time de-cluttering if I didn't have as much.  I saw this video several months ago, and I really thought it was a great simple way to explain the impact our need for "stuff" has on the environment.  Since watching this short film, I have made the conscious choice to consume less - we often forget that the first of the 3 Rs of Recycling is to REDUCE!  It is a US based analysis, and a little "left leaning", but now those sensitive to that have been warned - still watch it - it will make you question what you buy and bring into your home.  So, from girlfriend to girlfriend, take the time to watch this video clip, it's worth it!

If you want to learn more, or watch other videos (I may post them later) please go to the website The Story of Stuff
