"Talking Dirty News" - Queen of Green, Barbara Loraine

Story of Stuff

by Barbara Loraine

Stuff. We love our stuff. The short film that follows shows that how stuff is made – and where it ends up – makes a big difference for the environment.

The good news is: there are ways to recycle most of what we use and it only takes a minute to do so. From little plastic bottles, to plastic bags, to electroinics – it’s easy to recycle them. What is NOT easy to get rid of is styrofoam. It’s a pain in the butt, but try to take a reusable container along to restaurants for leftovers.
