get your stuff sorted

You’ve heard of The Story of Stuff Project? I’ve mentioned it a bit here, especially in regards to the story of stuff in cosmetics.

It’s a movement helping us all to consume less stuff. Because we don’t need it, it makes us unhappy and, frankly, it’s killing us. I grew up with these messages from my parents and then was exposed to the opposite extreme during me time editing Cosmopolitan magazine. I went from a niaive lack of engagement in consumption… to total abhorrence of it. Our eternal grasping for stuff is upsetting. It upsets us.

Anyway. If you haven’t seen The Story of Stuff, here it is below OR, come see Annie Leonard, the chick in the video and behind the project, in person. She’s in Australia next week. I’ve posted the dates below.

Good and important… stuff. Book in to hear her talk!
