CCF is screening The Story of Stuff on Wednesday March 14th at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House. The Story of Stuff is one of the most watched environmental-themed online film of all time. It 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.

CCF will be screening this film, then facilitating a discussion on what will be the next chapter for each of us in our own stuff stories. We’ll tackle the issue of whether we can live well (or better!) with fewer material goods and how one goes about doing that in a consumption-saturated society.

This event coincides with the start of our “Living Well with Less” blog, following in the steps of our successful “Eating Local” and “Eating Well on a Budget” Blogs. Each participant will be taking on a personal consumption challenge that suits him or her and potentially blogging about it for CCF . If you’re interested in taking on a personal Living Well with Less challenge, don’t miss this event!

We’d appreciate it if you booked ahead as space is limited. Email info@cambridgecarbonfootprint or call 01223 301842.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Carbon Footprint series.
