We’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth saying again: The Story of Stuff is a film you’ve got to see.
It’s one of the clearest, most accessible and fun-to-watch educational videos I’ve seen in a long time. Annie Leonard takes us on a guided tour of how stuff gets made from the story of the extraction of its raw materials to its sale, use and disposal. Explaining along the way how all the stuff in our lives affects our communities at home and abroad, the Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.
It'll teach you something. It'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
