I watched this video almost a year ago and thought it was brilliant.
What it’s about and why you should watch it
It is a 20 min video (it goes fast, trust me), that breaks down and explains the world’s production and consumption patterns and how they affect the earth.
The Story of Stuff is explained so simply (both visually and orally), that it is impossible that the video not make a deep impact on the viewer. You’ll find it fascinating to understand the varying effects of extraction, production, distribution, consumption and disposal.
You’re won’t feel warm and fuzzy after watching it but, hopefully, it may actually provoke you to make a change in your own behavior. Or at least shock you a bit.
