The Story of Stuff

Bronagh sent on a link to the Story of Stuff today. It’s a 20 minute animated film that examines the underbelly of modern production and consumption and calls for a more sustainable world. The trailer is above, and you can see the whole thing here.

Alex Steffen is cofounder and executive editor of WorldChanging.com. Part blog and part eco-activist street team, WorldChanging.com serves as a source of information and inspiration for anyone interested in increasing sustainability and livability into the 21st century, emphasizing solutions over problems. Here is Alex’s talk to TED from April 2007.
