Ten years of Stuff

It's apparently ten years ago that Annie Leonard launched the first of her Story of Stuff videos, exploring the issues of our consumerism, and how we have been encouraged to buy more than we need.
The videos are available from the project website, and also on YouTube of course.
Since the first film, a number of others have been launched, including the Story of Electronics, which we also use as part of our Geography of my Stuff unit. It is described as follows:

The Story of Electronics, released in November 2011, employs the Story of Stuff style to explore the high-tech revolution’s collateral damage—25 million tons of e-waste and counting, poisoned workers and a public left holding the bill. Host Annie Leonard takes viewers from the mines and factories where our gadgets begin to the horrific backyard recycling shops in China where many end up. The film concludes with a call for a green ‘race to the top’ where designers compete to make long-lasting, toxic-free products that are fully and easily recyclable.
