Regenerative, Sustainable Living (RSL) Monthly Meeting
Jul 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT
July topic: Too Much Stuff
Hosts: Melissa Ribner & Pam Nichols
We have a problem with Stuff: we have too much of it, too much of it is toxic, and we don’t share it very well. But that’s not the way things have to be.
The Story of Stuff unleashed a torrent of pent-up demand for honest conversation about our consumption-crazed culture. Since it was released, this award-winning animated movie has garnered more than 6,632,782 online views from around the world. It has encouraged viewers to support hundreds of environmental projects and campaigns with their time, energy and money. 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.
If you haven’t seen it, or even if you have but it’s been a while, we believe you will be inspired as founder Annie Leonard unpacks this easy to understand explanation and examination of our broken systems of consumption and excess. This will be an interactive call; we will watch the film together and then dialogue about what we can do about it…
“We depend on this planet to eat, drink, breathe, and live. Figuring out how to keep our life support system running needs to be our number-one priority. Nothing is more important than finding a way to live together – justly, respectfully, sustainably, joyfully – on the only planet we can call home.”
The Regenerative, Sustainable Living (RSL) group meets on the second Thursday of every month for our online meeting. Each monthly presentation will provide us more depth about the given topic so that we can make smart decisions about what subsequent actions to take.
