Videos we may or may not have watched in class, but that I think are kind of thought provoking or fun in some way or another... (some of these have links to related materials below them). Some of these videos are controversial, they are here for your consideration only - if they make you think, talk to someone, look something up, make you curious to find out more about something - then they've done their job!


Having great ideas , then having greater ideas to make the initial great idea easier! Thinking and dreaming and creating - you don't always have to do things the same way they've always been done.

The Story of Stuff

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. http://storyofstuff.org


This 20 minute animation was extremely controversial in past years - BE CAREFUL WHEN WATCHING THIS VIDEO - Annie Leonard has a viewpoint that is not exactly mainstream!



The Story of Bottled Water (2010)


The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industrys attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

Our production partners on the bottled water film include five leading sustainability groups: Corporate Accountability International, Environmental Working Group, Food & Water Watch, Pacific Institute, and Polaris Institute.
