[GreenYes] Re: Fw: The Story of Stuff

Sarah, Thank-you for this film.

I am a Green Team Representative with the United Methodist Women. I give talks in Minnesota, North Dakota (and in the past Iowa.)

I have forwarded this film onto about 50 people and I hope to use this film in some of my presentations.

I found it to be well worth the 20 minutes run time, entertaining, clear and concise.

Subject: The Story of Stuff

Short film about consumption and its impact - in simple terms.  Good educational tool.
3. Berkeley filmmaker gets serious about consumer waste with "Stuff"   email this article
An environmental activist turned filmmaker, Annie Leonard of Berkeley opens her first film by removing the earbuds of her iPod and telling viewers, "I got a little obsessed with all my stuff." Leonard's film, "The Story of Stuff," encompasses years of research and advocacy she compacted into a concise, 20-minute movie that premieres today online. In her film, Leonard intends to simplify what she calls the "materials economy" - extraction, production, distribution, consumption and disposal - and convince Americans that although the system seems easy enough to understand, it is full of flaws and globally damaging effects.
