The Story Of Stuff,

Red Keane 65°

This website takes a deeper look into the lifecycle of consumer products and the effects on the planet. I learned a few things from watching the video and I thought I’d share it with Celsias and see what you guys think. Here’s an excerpt from the site that gives a little more insight.

“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.”
