What have you done today to lower your impact?

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.

The Story of Stuff

This nice little educational video has been called anti-capitalist and leftist. I guess dealing honestly with the impacts of consumerism, understanding how what we use has a stream of waste behind it, and the potential of continuing to treat the planet as infinite is somehow a leftist practice. Does that mean that delusion, denial, and intentional misrepresentation of the facts is a right wing practice. Does capitalism have to be practiced in such a way as to doom itself? I guess I never thought that understanding how the world works was either left or right, just good ole common sense.
