It’s a good day to watch The Story of Stuff

If you’re like us, today you’re getting a lot of appeals to shop, shop, shop till you drop, drop drop, drop… even from some progressive organizations and campaigns. Whether you’ve chosen to take advantage of some of the “Black Friday” promotions or observe “Buy Nothing Day”, we encourage you to take a few minutes out of your day to watch The Story of Stuff, hosted by Annie Leonard.

Synopsis: The Story of Stuff, originally released in December 2007, 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.
