The Story of Stuff in 20 Animated Minutes

Here’s anoth­er good sub­mis­sion (many thanks) that came out of last week’s book give­away…

It’s an ani­mat­ed film called The Sto­ry of Stuff, which offers “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 .… and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life for­ev­er.”

The film, nar­rat­ed by Annie Leonard, an expert in inter­na­tion­al sus­tain­abil­i­ty and envi­ron­men­tal health issues, can be viewed on The Sto­ry of Stuff web site, or it can be down­loaded here for free. Below, we have post­ed a quick teas­er that will give you a feel for what this film is all about.
