Last year on Earth Day I remember being disappointed that there seemed to be so little celebration of this critical day. This year, in my search for celebrations of Earth Day 2009, I came accross the charming yet poingnant video The Story of Stuff. "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...and exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues."
Below is a teaser of the video but be sure to watch the entire video on their website. It is translated into several languages so share internationally!
