Confessions of an Eco-Sinner

Confessions of an Eco-Sinner: Tracking Down the Sources of My Stuff. British science journalist Fred Pearce travels the world investigating the "cradle to grave" stories of his stuff. This excellent book helps us connect the social, environmental and economic repercussions of our insatiable demand for "things" and the global supply chain that satisfies those demands. But the real story is the people who make up this chain. That's the fascinating revelation here.

Further discussions on the topic can be found in the New Scientist blog "Fred's Footprint".
