Usually when things are thrown out we don't think twice over the impact it can have on our history or the story they can tell about the time we live in. Lisa Woollett goes on a journey recovering those objects left behind in the past to paint a picture of our history and how consumer culture has changed over the years. It makes us think twice about what we should leave behind to tell our story.
