The Story of Stuff

April 17, 2008

Here is an enlightening, funny video on the cycle of stuff from production to consumption to disposal as told by Annie Leonard.  Think of it as the quick and dirty or Cliff Notes version – great for those of us with short attention spans, busy days, etc.!  Very interesting – makes you think a lot about your consumptory habits.  All the more reason to practice being EcoKind – which I can help you with!

More about the video…

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. 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.
