The Story of Stuff

Originally posted May 14, 2009


Right after I uploaded my last post about my longing for more simplicity, my attention was called to this amazing video on consumerism. It’s called the Story of Stuff, and it’s being shown in classrooms across the country to bring this country’s level of consumption into perspective for students (a fabulous idea, in my opinion).

Apparently the boy told me about this video ages ago, but I didn’t remember. He obviously didn’t SHOW it to me before, because I would not have forgotten the message, the articulation of the narrator, or the animation, which is adorable. I also would not have forgotten sitting through a 20-minute video. It is LONG, people. But so worth it. Give it a look.
