Do you think the world is to materialistic and so why and If not why. I think it is because we buy stuff we dont need and we throw out so much stuff. I have stuff in my storage closet I havnt used in years. I have stuff ill never use . Some stuff I dont even realize I have. What about the land fields. They are overfilled.What can we do to help this. I use a web site for my area locally. Its for recycling. People post things that they done want anymore and give it to someone who can you the items. They should have a site like these in every state.

i think the world is way too materialistic. Everyday I hear or read Whatif you had a million dollars. My daughter jsut im'ed me 'when are we going to win the lottery'. Me I don't want a lot of money or things. I want peace in my life. A lot of money? That would mean I would have to change my whole way of thinking and I do not have the energy for that!

Yes I think we live in a throw away world. I have started downsizing from some of the stuff I thought I really needed. The best way to get rid of stuff is to recycle. I also belong to a recycling group. I think it's a good way to start but think many more should come to realize that there is definately a problem.
