The Story of Stuff
I am sure that this has been seen by many, many people. However, I thought that with all that there is to say on the subject of stuff this would be nice background. I’d also like ot toss out there to the world the idea of showing this to at least one person that you think would benefit. It’s 20 minutes long, so do make some tea, and prepare to watch the whole thing.

Have a look around the Story of Stuff website, and see if you can’t find a few ways to curb your own personal consumption.
“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.”
