The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. It 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.
Start at 17:00 to see an explanation of why dumping and incineration is bad, or start at the beginning to get educated about the whole stream of production. Annie Leonard & Jonah Sachs, December 2007.
