Consumption to Consumerism

What you need:

What you do:

  1. Ask your child, "What are all of the things that we consume on a daily basis?"
  2. Ask, "Where does our food come from? Where does our clothing come from? Household items? Phones?"
  3. Tell your child that they will watch a video called "The Story of Stuff" to learn more about what we consume and where things are made.
  4. After watching the video together, review the Story of Stuff Fact Sheet.
  5. Ask, "What stood out most to you in the video and fact sheet? How does consumption affect the environment? Society?"
  6. Review the Consumption Log and Goals worksheet and together make a plan for mindful consumption in your household.
