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.
A friend recommended this video to me a few weeks ago and I agreed to watch it but things came up and I never got around to it. Today, I opened up my email and noticed that another sister had also recommended it. So, I thought, well let me just skim over this and check it out to see what all the fuss is about. Wow! I watched it all the way through and it was a huge wake up call for me. I didn’t realize what an impact all of our “stuff” is making on the enviroment and the world. Insh’Allah, I definatley plan to make some changes. I may be a little late but if you haven’t already checked it out then click this link and watch! It’s worth it!
