Thursday afternoon links

If you haven’t seen Annie Leonard’s brilliant film, the Story of Stuff, treat yourself.  Make a nice cup of tea, find a comfy chair, sit back and enjoy.  It is 20 minutes long, so you’ll need that cup of tea, but worth every second.  A brilliant explanation of why sustainability matters.  If you’re in the UK, it’s probably raining, so what better way to spend your afternoon?

If you’re into green buildings, this one is awesome.  Proof that size doesn’t matter – it is possible to build sustainability into a 200,000 square foot colossus.

Finally, some beautiful photographs of Ecuadorian hummingbirds, and:

Coop of the week! Michael Thompson’s amazing project to convert a 1970 Morris Traveller into to a hen house for four ex-battery chickens in the heart of the Norfolk broads.

Wonder product of the week! Footprint multi-pack reusable shopping bags.  I bought a four-pack of these a month ago and use them all the time.  Genius.
