Annie Leonard’s “Story of Stuff” in New York Times
Berkeley’s own Annie Leonard, the “unapologetic” activist for sustainability who created the online video “The Story of Stuff,” is the subject of an article in the New York Times on May 11, 2009. The 20-minute video, first posted in 2007, has become a popular way for teachers to present climate change issues in the classroom.
Annie Leonard is a fan of The Sharing Solution — these are her comments about the book:
From the neighborhood level to the global, sharing may be the single most important strategy to reduce our environmental impact, gain financial health, promote equity and have fun. The Sharing Solutionprovides valuable advice and how-to tips for seasoned sharers and new converts. This book is a tremendously valuable resource for us all, and a must-read for those who want to chart a new path: a more sustainable, more compassionate and more fun one.
Congratulations to Annie Leonard on this great visibility for her important project!
