Viral Video alert - The Story of Stuff

Ever ask yourself how you got all that STUFF?? "The Story of Stuff" is a brief 20 minute flash movie talking about the government, corporations, resource limits, and stuff in general. It's fun, engaging, and very visual. Watch it, use it in your class, or blog about it.

"From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff 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." (From the story of stuff website: http://www.storyofstuff.com/)
