Stuffed!

If you’re like most people, you’ve got stuff-lots of it. Big stuff, small stuff, pretty stuff, smelly stuff. Ever wonder where your stuff came from, beyond where you purchased it, that is? Or how it was actually made, distributed, consumed, and disposed of? Well, I did, and do, and think about such things pretty often. In this incredible video, hosted by Annie Leonard, we learn “The Story of Stuff.” Make yourself a cup of tea, sit back in your chair, and be informed about our stuff, its consequences, and our future.

    This is powerful. Helped me see my crochety old toaster oven and rummage sale furniture with new pride… and my drawer full of disposable batteries with new resolve…

    Reminds me of the George Carlin skit where he says that a house is “just a place to put your stuff!” and a bigger house means you can get “More STUFF!”
    Really though, Americans need to reframe how they perceive themselves and our consumer culture. All children in our schools need to be educated on this, and need to see their parents consume responsibly in the home, so that there is positive change in the future.
