This month, Noor Cultural Centre will be hosting a weekly reading and discussion series based on the highly-acclaimed book “The Story of Stuff” by Annie Leonard. The book follows the release of the thought provoking movie that traces the life cycle of consumer products and examines the resulting environmental impacts from a comical perspective. Considering a study released last week found Canadians waste 40% or $27 billion worth of food annually; this discussion series is extremely relevant.
This four-part series will cover the contents of the entire book, with each session consisting of a recap, analysis and discussion of the material
