About the Talk



連珠炮彈式的提問,在在說明「垃圾」不只是垃圾,它從「被生產」出來的一刻開始,已經與大家和地球的生命連在一起,揮之不去。生活中每一個「買」與「丟」的行為,不但在糟蹋自己的健康,也在耗用地球的資源;二戰後迷信GDP 增長會為人類帶來幸福的發展信條,不但將人類變成消費的奴隸,更重要的是令地球緊逼極限。




The author Annie Leonard is truly obsessed with stuff – where did it come from? how did it get to us? and where does it go?  ...  All the questions have revealed that from the moment when “stuff” is produced, it is already closely connected with us and our environment.  Our purchase, use and disposal of the stuff are ruining our health and exploiting the resources of the earth.  After the second world war, people believed that GDP growth would bring us better life.  Humans are being enslaved by consumption.  More important is that our earth is being pushed to its limit.  The author believed that knowing the story of stuff is a starting point and an opportunity for change.
