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.
