The Story of Stuff

This Earth Day it is important to think about how our consumption of goods affects the world at large. Next time you pull out your phone to check the weather or read a text, think about all of the people and resources used to get you that information and technology. We live in a society that reveres infinite consumerism and struggles with finite resources.

What are some ways to alleviate the stress placed on the planetĀ in order to maintain a healthy balance of consumption and environmental sanctity?

Here is a video to help you find a solution:

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

-Henry David Thoreau
