The Story of Stuff

Those fortunate enough to live in the First World (North America, Western Europe, Japan, Australia) have access to more consumer goods than anyone, anywhere, ever.  We are, quite literally, surrounded by ‘stuff.’  Have you ever wondered where all that stuff comes from?  Or how about where it goes after we’re done with it?  Well Annie Leonard did, so she set out on a ten year journey to find out.  The Story of Stuff is a fascinating short-length presentation (20 min) featuring some of the interesting things Annie discovered.  The use of animation is well done and Annie’s engaging approach really adds a nice touch.  It’s informative, thought-provoking and geared towards kids and adults.
