The Story of Stuff

I first saw this video 6 years ago, and I have watched it multiple times since then. Every time I press play, I am reminded of how disturbing and extremely mindless our everyday actions are. Single-use products and packaging come in and out of our lives in a matter of minutes. We need to quickly rethink the current production, consumption, and disposal cycle.

A Further Loss Of Consumer Knowledge

This is a must watch! Not only has the meat and poultry industry become so tainted (literally) by hormones, antibiotics, etc. (that we do not have adequate consumer knowledge of), the house now wants to remove labeling the country of origin. ...Why? The animal protein industry is one of the most unregulated industries in our country. Is "mystery meat" from who-knows-where, fed with chemicals and unnatural substances really what you want to be putting into your body? 

Not to mention the immense environmental degradation due to the meat industry... but that rant is for another time....

Here is the WSJ article for further information on the situation.
