The Story of Stuff
with Annie Leonard
DVD, $10, including free First-Class shipping to anywhere in the world.
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled DVD that looks 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.
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
She was named one of Time
magazine's "Environmental Heroes" in 2008.
