The Story of Stuff

Throughout this month’s special edition, all Web links to sites will help your class or organization live a more sustainable life. Our final free resource is a 20-minute animated story about, well, stuff.

All the “stuff” we consume creates enormous waste. As long as we have trees to cut down, coal to mine, and oil to pump, we’ll always be able to make more stuff. But when those things run out, which they inevitably will, then where will we get our stuff from?

This short animation is a great way to get your students to think about that question and how they can consume responsibly.
