I just really liked this poster. I could say a lot of stuff about…stuff. But you already know it anyway.
Let me give you this question to ponder, though: If stuff like plastic cutlery, paper plates, paper towels, cleaning agents, swiffers and processed food are meant to save us time, what are we doing with all that saved time?
Is it worth the price we’re paying environmentally ? It’s not just the oil extraction, there’s also the plastic manufacturing process, the packaging process and the waste disposal issue.
If you haven’t already seen the Story of Stuff, it’s about 20 minutes and worth watching.
