Environmental Mindfulness - The Story of Stuff
On my drive towards a recent camp event, I was listening to a little radio blurb about how our world population is increasing. It reminded me that, as camp people—especially at a program that tries to be intentional about empowering our campers in all aspects of their growth—we have a vested interest in protecting our Earth’s limited resources, which are in jeopardy of being forever ruined during our lifetimes.
When you have twenty minutes or so, take the time to watch this video ("The Story of Stuff") if you haven’t yet seen it. As its blurb states, “It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.” It provides an entertaining, clear, and hopeful explanation of why the economy and world are in their current conditions. Check it out, show it to your kids, and pass it on. Maybe we can turn things around…hopefully so!
