【樂活書蟲】東西的故事

幾年前台灣看守協會翻譯了一部由安妮‧雷納德製作、片長大約20分鐘的短片《東西的故事(The Story of Stuff)》,短片介紹的是「東西」從原料開採一直到被丟棄所發生的故事,簡單的說明卻讓人深刻了解在這消費主義盛行的年代,過度消費所帶來、包括環境破壞、公平正義淪喪的大問題。短片內容主要是由安妮‧雷納德說明,並輔以可愛簡單的動畫,可看性相當高。我好幾次演講或辦活動都會把這部短片拿出來分享(一方面可以填補演講時間,再者,我講的絕對沒有安妮好啊......),評價也都不錯。

 

今年初,我發現《東西的故事》出版成書,而中文版最近也上市了!我一方面高興,但並沒有購買的慾望,想說應該就是和短片內容大同小異。後來在書店翻閱後,卻還是買了這本書,因為發現書的內容比短片更加深入許多。如果說短片帶給你的是一個概念、一個骨架,書本則把細節、血肉都給了你。

 

書中分成五大章,分別就原料開採、生產製造、銷售配送、消費使用、丟棄廢除來討論我們消費背後的詳細故事。每部分都有實例,可以深入發掘我們平常沒想到的許多層面。我最欣賞的是安妮所提出的系統性思維──也就是想解決環境、公義的問題不能只是從點來做,因為所有事情都是相關連的。如果我們面對問題只是頭痛醫頭、腳痛醫腳,沒辦法解決真正的問題。

 

書中有個例子舉得很好,如果你回到家,發現因為水龍頭沒關導致淹水,地毯泡了水,這時你會先去處理地毯還是關水龍頭?如果只是處理溼地毯,問題是沒辦法獲得解決的。可是,我們解決地球的問題卻經常是這樣的思維。

 

消費的確不可避免,但要適度消費、聰明消費。或許你現在心中存有疑惑與不以為然,也或許你還是不認為你的消費行為沒有這麼大的影響力,那真的可以閱讀一下這本書,應該會有不同的想法及行為。

 

除了「東西的故事」,安妮又陸續製作了「碳交易的故事」、「瓶裝水的故事」,都很值得一看。如果你看了有所啟發,請記得分享。

coach factory outlet

http://www.coachfactoryoutletstars.com I have a bit of an obsession with Spelling Manor’s new owner coach factory outlet , 24-year-old Petra Ecclestone coach outlet, and her older sister Tamara Ecclestone Coach sunglasses
. Petra has a handbag line and theoretically Tamara’s a television personality and model Coach Wallets
, but really, they’re just full-time rich people who have taken a shine to the paparazzi spotlight coach purses. In my mind, the gossip about people like that is always way more interesting than the gossip about movie stars coach handbags
coach bags or reality TV famewhores because their lives have been so much weirder since birth coach purses outlet. (Not to mention that it’s a harder world inside of which to get a peek.)

Until the sisters eventually ink a deal for a reality show Coach Wallets outlet
, which seems like it kind of has to happen eventually coach factory outlet online , mostly what we get to see of them is when they’re conspicuously traipsing around Hollywood, usually with fabulous bags coach outlet online. It’s hard to tell from the angle, but I think that Petra’s carrying a rare coach store outlet, incredibly expensive Hermes So Black Crocodile Birkin, complete with gorgeous tonal black hardware coach factory. Tamara, on the other hand, has the first bright yellow Celine Phantom Luggage Tote that I’ve seen in the wild http://www.coachfactoryoutletstars.com.
