The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. It is the original Story of Stuff video ….over 5 yrs old but not dated. It’s the story of all the stuff in our lives, from its extraction through sale, use and disposal, which affects communities at home and abroad, and yet most of this is hidden from view. 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. An absolute classic!!!
