New Resource for Environmental Inspiration

Annie Leonard, the woman who brought us The Story of Stuff, is at it again. This time, her project is entitled "The Good Stuff" and brings us together with individuals around the nation who are making a difference to help our fragile environment.

The Good Stuff is planned as a monthly podcast - the first one is available now at her website and titled "Take that, Plastic Bags!" It  features interviews with entrepreneur Andy Keller, founder of ChicoBags, as well as Rose Timmer, an activist from Texas who helped ban plastic bags in her community.

The email that announced this new podcast venture explained it this way:

Every month, we’ll be releasing a new podcast, complete with inspiring stories, commentary from our own Annie Leonard, and ways for you to get involved in your own community.
Why apodcast focused on solutions?
It’s a rare day in our office that we don’t hear someone say, “I want make change but I don’t know what to do,” or “I’d like to help, but I’m only one person.”
We’re making The Good Stuff as an antidote to that kind of thinking.
The stories we’ll feature prove that the best place to start is with your passion and that by joining together we magnify our power to accomplish remarkable things. 

Check it out - give it a listen - and if you haven't watched Annie's other videos yet, check them out too. Totally worth a few minutes of your time to be inspired. We can all do something positive for the environment, every day or at least every week. It's not hard - it just takes a little thought.

What have you done for your environment lately?

  1. This sounds great! It's so important to keep the environment in the front of people's minds.


Go ahead - leave a comment! You know you want to! But don't be Anonymous - that'll just get you deleted. And who wants that?
