Heather just updated her site with 11 new pieces (oh, say like 15 minutes ago?). Snap them up quick as they have a habit of flying off the shelves!
(this one has to be my favourite.)
I discovered The Story of Stuff today and was mesmerized by the message that Annie Leonard has to tell about the process of production and consumption in America.
The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It’ll teach you something, it’ll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
I like how Annie breaks it down into manageable chunks of information, and there’s also the great animation that goes along with it as well that illustrates her points so well. Watch the clip over here.
Beautiful illustrations and surface design by Maija Louekari, discovered via one of my favourite blogs, Grain Edit. I’m a big fan of Marimekko and I’m still reading up on their book: Marimekko: Fashion, Fabrics, Architecture but had not seen her name in the book as it was published in 2003 (before her designs were featured.)
