the story of stuff
I was reading the super-cool Eco Goddess newsletter (more on that soon!) and saw a link to The Story of Stuff.
The Story of Stuff, with Annie Leonard (an expert in international sustainability and environmental health issues, with more than 20 years of experience investigating factories and dumps around the world), is a 20 minute interactive online video. It is fantastic!! The production is well done and the content is presented in such a simple, compelling way. Here's how they summarize the video:
"The Story of Stuff is 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, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever."
It is definitely a must-see. Check it out!
