The Story of Stuff
Some required viewing for anyone concerned with consumption habits: The Story of Stuff. The 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled story takes you on a provocative tour of our consumer-driven culture. From resource extraction through sale, use and disposal, the video looks at all the stuff in our lives and how it affects communities at home and abroad.
Update: The New York Times has run a story on The Story of Stuff, how it has become a hit in classrooms across the nation and how some school groups have responded to some of the video’s more intense messages.
