“The Story of Stuff” with Annie Leonard

What is the Story of Stuff?

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 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.

  1. Muse – thanks for posting. It is quite interesting. I’m not getting rid of Ipod. I do buy local whenever possible.

  2. Granny has been receiving catalogs from Land’s End for years. Early on the company offered only American Made products of quality. In their most recent catalog there was only ONE (1) item that was not imported and that was a small insignificant non-clothing item of little value. Needless to say the Land’s End catalog will assume the role of the old Sears-Roebuck catalbook in our in-door-out-house.

  3. Affluenza is another great find. The Kutztown Dem Club showed the movie “Affluenza” at one of our Potluck and Politics which attracted a decent size audience. Too bad we can’t do a “Potluck and Politics” over the internet. We do the “Politics”. It’s just difficult to do the “Potluck” part.

  4. Has anyone noticed that comments entered after GMT 12:00 am appear with the local time as ‘am’ even when the actual local time is prior to midnight?

  5. It’s 3:15am central here, 1:15am pacific, and your comment shows at 1:10am, Walt. That is normal for me.

  6. houseofroberts,
    I lost track because the comment at December 12, 2007 at 10:36 am was apparently left over from a prior use of this thread.

  7. I didn’t notice the date, but I bet you thought you were trippin’!
    Now I understand why “Cats”, was “Coffins”, that was before she changed back.
    I tried that link and got a 404. Then I tried just the .com to get the homepage and still got a 404.

  8. So, houseofroberts we are on the same wavelength. I missed the dates on my initial pass. I will, ask Zooey to train the staff. Zooey, ZEBRA?

  9. Coffins, I read that book as well. Affluenza still has a very prominent place in our bookshelves and we loan to whomever wants. =)
