The Story of Other Stuff

30/11/2010 at 6:00 am Leave a comment

With over 12 million on-line views, The Story of Stuff is one of the most widely viewed environmental-themed short films of all time.  The 20-minute video presents a critical vision of the consumerist American society.  It examines the connections between a growing number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.

Creater Annie Leonard has spent nearly two decades investigating and organizing on environmental health and justice issues.  She has traveled to 40 countries, visiting literally hundreds of factories where our stuff is made and dumps where our stuff is dumped.  Witnessing first hand the horrendous impacts of both over – and under – consumption around the world, Annie is fiercely dedicated to reclaiming and transforming our industrial and economic systems so they serve, rather than undermine, ecological sustainability and social equity.

Their on-line community has grown to include over 150,000 activists and they partner with hundreds of environmental and social justice organizations worldwide to create and distribute their films, curricula and other content.

Be sure to check out these great short films today.
