Life-Long Learning

One of the fun things I do for myself is to watch Ted Talks, listen to podcasts and visit youtube.com and click on a topic I want to learn more about. In doing so, I have found educational, intriguing and informative talks that take me places, teach me things and expand my world.

Last week, I watched a video called The Story of Stuff on youtube.com. I had read about the author in a Rotarian magazine article titled Watching Your Waste and then spent the next 21 minutes watching the video.

The story and video by Annie Leonard has been watched in more than 200 countries and translated into 15 languages.  The documentary is shown in churches, community rooms, college campuses and schools across the world.  The trash talking film about how we dispose of our waste and why we buy so much in the first place is just as relevant today.

The 21 minute documentary about our material goods and their lifecycle was launched in 2007 and has been viewed over 50 million times.

Watch the video (below) and then visit the storyofstuff.org.
You will not be disappointed.
