This is the story of stuff

A friend sent me this week a great video I wanted to share with you - 'The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard'.

This short video comes from the talented producers of "The Meatrix" and "Grocery Store Wars". It is an interesting short movie (about 20 minutes) that presents the big picture of how production and consumption processes are directly related to the social and environmental crises of our times.

Here's the description of 'The Story of Stuff' from its website:

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.

I really liked it. I hope you enjoy it as well!

Here it one of the video's teasers:
