The Story of Stuff

The 20-minute documentary presents a critical vision of the consumerist society.

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’s a great watch; 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.
