The Story of Stuff


The Daily Eureka!

I've always loved the line in the movie "Say Anything" when John Cusak's character, Lloyd Dobler, is asked by his girlfriend's father about his career plans.

"I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that."

Lloyd Dobler would have liked this short clever film called "The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard." The film succinctly and pointedly explains the entire cycle of production, consumption and disposal of "stuff" particularly its hidden human and environmental costs in. Although it's 20 minutes long, it's fast-paced and compelling.

Here's a trailer:
