Learning Objectives • To practise discussing and drawing out key points • To understand the difference between a ‘take-make-dispose’ approach and a circular economy approach
• Watch the film The Story of Stuff • https: //www. youtube. com/watch? v=9 Gorqroigq. M • Answer the questions
More questions to think about… 1. What kinds of materials do you throw out after one or two uses? 2. What kinds of materials get put on your rubbish collection day 3. What is the average life of computers? TVs? Are they recycled? 4. How does material use and waste today compare with your parents’ and grandparents’ experiences? 5. What kinds of clothing stay in cupboards for the longest time? Do you buy fashion items? How many seasons do they last before they become outdated? 6. What do you think about £ 1 shops? What items are available there? Why are they so cheap? 7. What do you think about the steps in “the treadmill”? Do you think that people are that naive? What examples confirm that model of consumption? 8. What is “retail therapy”? Does it work? Does it last? What are people really looking for? Do they find it in material goods? 9. People used to spend more time making their own household items (food, clothing etc) Are people being robbed of opportunities to express their creativity in a consumer culture? Could that have an effect on their mental health?
