I stumbled on this link today.
It’s a fun, very interesting, twenty-minute video about … well, about the story of stuff.
Did you know that only 1 percent of the goods that American’s buy are still in use 6 months after purchase. One percent.
It has a really simple explanation of planned and perceived obsolescence, too. I love that it’s all presented very straightforward, with no guilt or shame tactics. Just–Whoa, something is wrong here. Let’s fix it.
I’m going to have my kids watch this over the weekend.
