Buying for Buying's Sake

Annie Leonard is a longtime thought-leader of the sustainability movement who has always made a strong and compelling argument against our system of consumption.  In many ways her work makes her strong candidate to be one of the four busts on a hypothetical Mount Rushmore of Collaborative Consumption.  I just stumbled on a great little fact of hers in a image on Unstash.
