The Story of Stuff Project
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.

And for all you fact checkers out there:

It's sad... 9 years later and I'm pretty sure this is still 100% accurate. I was 7 at that time... crazy!
Darrell B
This is literally one of the most boring, uninteresting, bullshit,one sided videos i've ever seen, i cant believe that a 9 year old video is still being used for a college class.
Ikenna Azụbụike Ọnwụnabọnze
Capitalism, the bane of planet earth. Solution? Stem human greed and incessant need to seek satisfaction in material things. Be more cooperative, a bit more spiritual, caring and loving.
Charles Gallant
This video would have to views if our teachers just taught us stuff themselves instead of making us watch shitty videos
Eddie Reis
Why is the title in Portuguese?! Porque o título está em Português?! O.o
efrat benhaim
every singel word!!
Owliyo Mohamud
So much knowledge this video was soon worth it ! can we get an update of 2019 please
Ev Evenying Gacha
These people have no necks how do they live
This is still being shown in schools in 2018? I remember watching this in school in 2007. Still just as bad of a video then as now though in terms of explaining any kind of truth. One fundamental problem with the video lies in the fact that America is not dependent on the rest of the world for resources and even less so now than in 2007. the video discussing the trend of people moving from rural places to cities such as in china raised hundreds of millions into the middle class compared to the absolute squalor of the country side where they'd spent the last 4 decades or so starving. I could go on and on but almost everything in this video is wrong or misrepresenting what its talking about
Mr. Mioto
Thank you ISB 201
m x m b o .
John Doe
she is saying that there is no difference between crt and lcd, there is soo much different WTF
NoobCake part 8
I developed autism from this video
Brydon Foster
This video is just anti-capitalist propaganda base on false information and very poor research, as well as wording. Was this supposed to be like a 5th grade environment day assignment with some flashy illustrations?
Marty Buchaus
Where are the Proof and references? 5 Min In and found 45 Incorrect statements or generalizations that make the entire video suspect of being propaganda. This should not be repeated until references and proof are established.
