The story of stuff

Thanks to Jazzy, I came to see this here:

http://www.storyofstuff.com

It’s all about why our ideas of economics (see: “It’s the interest, stupid”) and consumerism can’t work in a finite world.

And how this consumerism started, how people started to seek “spiritual satisfaction” (I think that’s what we’re all after, even if we don’t know it) in shopping.  And how stupid a treadmill it is.

And also about what can be done (and what people already do), so it won’t leave you depressed.

Have a look (it’s really worth the 20 min), actually, it’s great fun!

And then: Do something.
