Posted: January 18, 2010
The winter holidays often inspire us to shop – sometimes a little too much. Annie Leonard, creator of “The Story of Stuff,” a 20-minute film about the hidden costs of “stuff,” will screen her film and offer discussion at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28, in the auditorium of Denison University’s Slayter Union (200 Ridge Road). The event is free and open to the public.
Environmental activist Leonard is also the author of “How Our Obsession with Stuff is Trashing the Planet, Our Communities, and Our Health – and a Vision for Change.” She looks at the real costs of extraction, production, distribution, consumption and disposal of our “stuff,” and tells us the history of consumption mania.
