For those familiar with the video that went viral, “The Story of Stuff by Annie Leonard,” you will delighted to learn that Annie’s new book “The Story of Stuff: How our obsession with stuff is trashing the planet, our communities, and our health – and a vision for change” has hit the shelves.The book expands on the video, offering a more detailed look at ‘stuff,’ including the various steps from extraction to production, distribution to consumption and finally the disposal of ‘stuff.’ Annie Leonard shares, “I received tens of thousands of emails asking for more information than I could possibly fit into the film. I wrote this book to explore these issues further with you and to share a journey both personal and material.” Stuff and Your BodyAs many of you know, I view permanent weight loss as a holistic event. It’s more about ‘right living,’ then it is about food. Wrong living adds to our unbalanced view of the world, unbalanced actions … unhealthy living. Annie further explains, “We have a problem with Stuff. With just 5 percent of the world’s population, we’re consuming 30 percent of the world’s resources and creating 30 percent of the world’s waste. If everyone consumed at U.S. rates, we would need three to five planets!” If we treat our planet badly, we are treating our bodies badly. What do you think?
