A Video for Earth Day

April 22 is Earth Day!.


Looking for a quiet way to celebrate at home?  Watch a short video online, The Story of Stuff.  If you've seen it before, it's just as good the second time.


Or send the link to someone you care about who might not have seen it.


The 20-minute video weaves the story  of our difficult relationship with all the stuff in our lives together with such other important stories as the one about the destruction of the environment, the one about ignoring the lives and rights of indigenous peoples, and the one about undermining the health of the people who manufacture toxic products.


For me, a recent second viewing of the video proved well worth the small investment of time.   The site, I also discovered, has a resource list including readings on topics covered in the video and tips on taking action.
