Here comes a couple of videos from the « Story of stuff project » I found interesting – putting aside the moralizing tone of the speaker – for its pedagogical and critical lecture of the processes of industrial production. You’ll make your own opinion watching.
« 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. »
