At the end of our last organizing session together, a dear client gave me a parting gift. It was the book The Story of Stuff: How Our Obsession with Stuff is Trashing the Planet, Our Communtities, and Our Health – And a Vision for Change by Annie Leonard.
I haven’t read the book yet, but I’m really excited to find a book that addresses the environmental issues that lurk behind the organization/consumption issues that so many of my clients struggle with. I’m especially looking forward to the “vision for change” that the author incorporates into the book.
I’ll let you know my thoughts about the book after I’ve read it on my upcoming vacation. In the meantime, have you read The Story of Stuff? What are your thoughts about how our shopping habits impact the global environment as well as the inner environments of our homes?
