We made our first donation today: to Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff organization! I just love her work, who she is, what she does, and the passion she shows in getting the word out about what really goes on about things.
Her story on tap water was riveting/horrifying. See it here: http://storyofbottledwater.org – Cross your fingers that I’ll be able to get her to interview for the Daring Dreamers Showcase! I’ll let you know –
Annie has spent nearly two decades investigating and organizing on environmental health and justice issues. She has traveled to 40 countries, visiting literally hundreds of factories where our stuff is made and dumps where our stuff is dumped.
Witnessing first hand the horrendous impacts of both over- and under- consumption around the world, Annie is fiercely dedicated to reclaiming and transforming our industrial and economic systems so they serve, rather than undermine, ecological sustainability and social equity.
