MAP youth went to hear Annie Leonard speak at the University of Buffalo in early March last year. Annie created The Story of Stuff with her friends, which is a 20-minute movie on the internet about the way we make, use, and throw away “stuff”. Annie’s video has been viewed more than 40 million times worldwide!
We enjoyed her speech and loved her ideas on how we can try to get more people to create a lifestyle that reduces waste. We related to Annie and her video a lot because MAP Growing Green is trying to make the world a healthier place as well. Annie encouraged the people in the audience to “flex their citizen muscles”, which basically means to help as much as you can to make the world a better place.
