The Story of Stuff


Someone showed me this awesome video, it’s actually part of a whole site, like David Suzuki’s Nature Challenge, on how to live green and how to make a real difference in this increasingly consumerist society.

Look at the teaser bellow, or simply go to http://www.storyofstuff.com/ to check the whole video. It’s about 20 minutes long but it’ll make you think a lot. Seriously, check it out.

  1. that link/video is incredible. i mean, individually i kinda knew all about what she was talking about, but her presentation of the material is just perfection. thanks for the link… i’ll be spreading that one around. so on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being a consumer whore) where do you fit in? i think i’m a 4.

  2. Hey lefty,
    yeah that’s a good question. I’d say that I am a 5. I do my share of recycling/reusing and I tend to think twice before buying things… but I also know that I am easily tempted to get the new gadgets from time to time and am still very attracted to well designed computer things (like iPods). It’s difficult to evaluate because I just don’t know how wasteful people can be… you know what I mean? I know I can do much more than what I do at the moment though – hence the five.
    By the way, i agree with the video. the design of the whole thing is just superb. I’m glad you enjoyed the link.
