Story of Stuff

You can download for free this documentary and print interesting information. It’ll help you get ideas and useful language to learn to talk about many different issues, like consumerism, sustainability, globalization and happiness for human beings…: “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.
If you’ve watched this documentary, we’d be very happy to hear if you think it’s worth watching, why and what you learned (US) / learnt (UK) from it. If you watched it and hosted a screening or organized some kind of activity, tell us about it!
Thanks for posting 🙂

  1. Hello! This documentary gives a real description of our daily life. Yes It´s true. Thinking only about our way of behaving, we´ll need three or four planets to be still alive in the future. I don´t know which is the reason why many people don´t think about our future generations. We all might remedy this situation.
    Life is so beautiful that it´s worth fighting to save our world. Time is running, so make an effort, please….

    Thank so much for your attention..

    Take care, all the best!!!

    You learn.

  3. From my point of view, everything shown in the video is absolutely discouraging . Globalization is really unfair, especially for developping countries, wich are suffering all the negative consequences but are not taking advantage of anything. They spend a huge amount of money on creating needs (for comsumption) but very little on helping poor countries develop themselves. Totally unfair.

  4. Check out Ana & Marcos’s OP on this documentary, it includes a listening activity, among other things!
