The Consumption Society

ScreenShot002

My wife found this site and I just spent 20 min watching the video: http://www.storyofstuff.com

If the consumption mind set of our culture troubles you.. check out the video, it’s worth watching.  I’m not sure about the validity of all the stats or claims.  A few of them seem a little over the top and might be “spun” to further the argument she is making, but with that in mind, I think there’s still space for thoughtful review of how and why “stuff” is purchased.
