Event Description

Society’s consumption of the earth’s resources are at an all time high. Globally renowned filmmaker and author of “The Story of Stuff,” Annie Leonard will join us for her insights on creating a more sustainable and just world.

About Annie Leonard:
Annie Leonard is the author and host of our very own The Story of Stuff. She is author of The Story of Stuff, the book, published by Free Press of Simon and Schuster on March 9, 2010.

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.

Thank you to our co-sponsors: JP Greenhouse, Corporate Accountability, Bikes not Bombs, Jobs with Justice
