The Story of Stuff

You may have heard of or watched the youtube video titled The Story of Stuff. If not, its worth checking out. There's a book written by the video's creator, Annie Leonard. The video examines the lifecycle, of, well, stuff by looking how things are created, bought, and thrown away. Leonard focuses on the idea that as a society we have "more" stuff than ever before, but cohesively, it is making us sad, not happy. She suggests - 1) reducing the need to work more by spending less and 2) value time over having more stuff
