The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard

The Story of Stuff

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.

Thoughtful Gift from Boss to Teen Employee (my daughter) – Vegan

IMG_2847

My daughter works in a retail store and look what her manager gave her for Christmas. She was thrilled with the consideration of the items as she is at 16 a Vegan and very disciplined. What an amazing thought gift to a teenager from her boss. I had to share. She felt her manager listens and learns about her. The gift was thought out and respectful. Anyone can give anything however this was a well thought out gift that really empowered my daughter to know that she is valued at her work. She is the youngest on the team so this was awesome and she contributed to our cupboards right away. Really nice eh!
