The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard.
Nadaanan ko itong website na ‘The Story of Stuff’ at medyo dahil baguhan ako sa mga ganitong tema ay medyo gusto ko ring i-share sa inyo. Medyo nga lang kailangang ng 20 minutos ng inyong oras para mapanood ang bidyo.
Naito naman ang sabi ng Wikipedia:
The Story of Stuff is a polemical animated documentary about the life-cycle of material goods.
Activist Annie Leonard wrote and narrated the film. Tides Foundation, The Funders Workgroup for Sustainable Production and Consumption, Free Range Studios and other foundations funded the film. Free Range Studios produced it. It was first launched online on December 4, 2007.
The documentary is being used in elementary schools, arts programs, and post-graduate economics classes as well as places of worship and corporate sustainability trainings. By February 2009, it had been seen in 228 countries and territories. According to the hosting site as of September 2009, it already had more than 7 million views.
Maaring magiging iba-iba ang maging reaksiyon sa mensahe ng ‘The Story of Stuff’ pero sa akin lang puwedeng itong maging batayan ng kung ano ang makakabuti sa malakihang estado ng ating kapaligiran. At sa kung paano tayo magkakaroon ng kaalaman sa kung ano ba ang puwede nating gawain sa sariling buhay para mabawasan ang masamang epekto sa ating kapaligiran at magkaroon ng kaligayahan sa sinasabing ‘what matters most in life’.
May malalim din siyang mensahe sa tema ng materyalismo at sa pagiging konsumer ng mga tao sa Amerika na sabi niya ay naging epekto na matinding advertising gimik sa mga napapanood sa mga TV.

At sinabi din ito sa sa Website:
Each of us can promote sustainability and justice at multiple levels: as an individual, as a teacher or parent, a community member, a national citizen, and as a global citizen. As Annie says in the film, “the good thing about such an all pervasive problem is that there are so many points of intervention.” That means that there are lots and lots of places to plug in, to get involved, and to make a difference. There is no single simple thing to do, because the set of problems we’re addressing just isn’t simple. But everyone can make a difference, but the bigger your action the bigger the difference you’ll make. Here are some ideas:
Everyone can make a difference.
