RECENTLY ON TOL:

As much as I want to reduce my current stuff, and reduce my need for new stuff, I wonder about the impact on our economy. The US capitalist model can't exist, let alone grow, without continual purchases of stuff. So if we reduce, reuse, recycle--which we should, do we then need to reclassify the economic model of the US?
The other benefit of reducing stuff is perhaps the bigger problem of packaging. Less stuff, less packaging/waste--and packaging is really a big problem.
