The Story of Stuff Project

Screenshot
The nonprofit The Story of Stuff Project was founded in 2008 by Annie Leonard after her 2007 animated documentary about consumer society, The Story of Stuff, went viral. Here, visitors can watch all of The Story of Stuff Project's short movies online, most of which are in the same style as the original video (which is also available in both Spanish and English). Many of these videos provide annotated scripts, which include detailed footnotes with source citations. The resources section offers educators free learning tools for students from Jewish, Christian, and Baha'i backgrounds intended to help "teenagers explore the relationship between their consumption, their faith, and the health of the planet," as well as an activity for 3rd and 4th-year high school French learners based on a translation of The Story of Stuff. This website also offers Citizen Muscle Boot Camp, a free four-week online course for future changemakers, as well as a reading guide to accompany Leonard's 2011 book, also entitled The Story of Stuff. Following the success of The Story of Stuff Project, in 2014 Leonard became the executive director of Greenpeace USA.
