Be polite, just go about your day, and all¿s well, because you¿re not hurting anybody, right? Look deeper into that cup of coffee you drank this morning, the shoes you¿re wearing, the burgers & fries you had for lunch¿.and so on. Every choice we make -- every product we use -- has an impact that many of us are unaware of. That impact affects other people, other animals, and the planet in myriad ways -- often in very destructive, harmful ways. Ryan & Durning explore the impact of some of the choices we make by making connections between our daily habits and the various impacts of those habits. Find out the hidden story of "everyday consumer goods."
