I would like to say that I am indebted to one of my readers, grandfathersky for mentioning the video which I have posted below. If you enjoy wonderful poetry you should visit his blog http://grandfathersky.wordpress.com.
The video is one of the most excellent and understandable explanations of how all the things we buy come into being, serve their purpose and are then discarded. I know that many of my readers are concerned about the way we treat each other and the way we treat our planet. If so, you will most certainly enjoy this presentation.
Please let me know what you think of it.
