Story Of Stuff Book Adds To The Vision Of Decreased Consumption
The Story Of Stuff book continues where the popular video left off, and is filled with examples of hope, and ways people could get involved and do things differently.
The Story of Stuff, created by Annie Leonard, began as a short video highlighting how out of control consumerism is affecting the world. It begins by defining the act of consumption, beginning with the process of ‘extraction’ another word for exploiting natural resources. The web video runs twenty minutes and surprises the viewers with the amount of information shared. There was so much left out from the video, that Annie decided to fill a book with her adventures, examples of hope, and ways people could get involved and do things differently. The book tells the rest of the story.
