The Story of Stuff
This videos is worth a view. I wish I still had some of the 50s, 60s and 70s cars I used to drive. They didn't cost me that much and never broke and if they did I could fix them and they really did not get that bad of fuel mileage and contrary to public belief if they were tuned up well they didn't pollute. Many of mine went through those smog check stations and they couldn't believe how clean the report was. Crushing the old cars was just another way to get us to buy more.
And what about the old furniture that was made with real wood and stuffed with natural fibers, it lasted a long time too and was comfortable. Pressed wood is heavy and filled with chemicals and glues to keep it together. Oh, well I could go on about all the processed and genetically modified foods, but time is short. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
