Graham Hill: Less stuff, more happiness

Bio from ted.com:

Graham Hill (@GHill) founded the eco-blog and vlog TreeHugger.com, to help, as he says, “push sustainability into the mainstream,” with a design-forward style and an international, wide-ranging team committed to transforming complex issues into everyday concepts. It’s been called “the Green CNN.” The TreeHugger team was even asked to join the Discovery Communications network as a part of their Planet Green initiative, and Hill now makes appearances on the green-oriented cable channel.

Before Treehugger, Hill studied architecture and design (his side business is making those cool ceramic Greek cups). His other company, ExceptionLab, is devoted to creating sustainable prototypes — think lamps made from recycled blinds and ultra-mod planters that are also air filters.

Hill is the author of Weekday Vegetarian, available as a TED Book on Amazon and Apple’s iBooks.

“You should be allowed to be a modern city dweller and still care about the environment.”

About the talk:

Writer and designer Graham Hill asks: Can having less stuff, in less room, lead to more happiness? He makes the case for taking up less space, and lays out three rules for editing your life.

My view:

Short, but effective talk. Love the message.
