The Story of Stuff

Today’s film festival got a lot of boys talking… about STUFF! About 40 boys signed up to watch The Story of Stuff, a 2007 video all about production, distribution, consumption and disposal of the things we want, buy, and use. We learned some scary facts, like how companies design products to break on purpose; and how for every can of garbage we make, over 70 cans of garbage went into the production of the stuff we’re throwing out!

If you missed today’s event, you can watch the movie here, and also go to the Story of Stuff website to watch other videos and learn what you can do to make a difference.
