…Paper and plastic are bad?

Paper Or Plastic?

Which do you choose?

If you’re trying to save the world, then your answer should be neither, as both come with downsides that negatively (and drastically) affect the environment.

To see exactly what each choice is doing to the environment, check out the The Washington Post’s comparison; because small changes are needed if we want to make a big difference.

…The paperless home is in our future?

Paperless Home

According to The New York Times, we’re closer to a paperless world than most people realize.

Documents can be scanned, photos are all digital, phonebooks are non-existent, and if it can’t be Googled, then it doesn’t exist.

Our computers are quickly becoming the storage solution for almost everything, and paper is falling out of fashion as a means of documentation.

What does this mean for the average person?

Not much now, though in a few years, a Jetsons home may not be such a pie in the sky dream after all.

…It’s Things Thursday: Fuck This Book?

Fuck This Book

Fuck This Book is a collection of unaltered and untasteful images of “real public signs that have been mischievously altered by stickers bearing the most expressive of all four-letter words”.

What’s the message?

Thankfully, nothing: “This is not social commentary. There is no message. It’s not meant to offend, exploit, or embarrass anyone.”

Instead, it’s just meant to be a juvenile, profane, and timeless look at our lives in a world that has been persuasively transformed.

…Our stuff has a story to tell?

The Story Of Stuff

The Story of Stuff is a “20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns”.

It follows our stuff from extraction through sale, use and disposal, and shows how all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad.

The hope is that the SoS will expose the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and call us together to create a more sustainable and just world.
