“The Story of Stuff” is a movie about the culture of consumption – how organisations make too much stuff and we buy and use too much of it. The movie looks at the environmental and social impact of this. Although made in 2007, the video is just as valid now. As its producers say, “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.”

“We have a problem with Stuff: we have too much of it, too much of it is toxic, and we don’t share it very well. But that’s not the way things have to be.” The Story of Stuff Project

The Story of Plastic

Plastic pollution is a serious problem – creating a massive amount of waste, killing wildlife, endangering health, and threatening ecosystems. This animated short presents the causes and consequences of the global plastics crisis.

“The world has a plastic problem. We make, use, and throw away million of tons of it every year, causing big problems for people and the planet. To create a future without plastic pollution, we need to take action to get disposable plastic out of our lives and out of our communities.” The Story of Stuff Project
