I have just read the book and now I saw the story of stuff video again. It really taught me a lot
I might be the 1% of random dudes. School ended for me in 1995.
Here for school but seriously such an eye opener! So sad and True!
I was going to tell my teacher I couldn't understand but there are subs.. damn.
Also, watch in 1,25x speed
Thank me later
Ten years later: still accurate. 😑
Very bad cuality
I think this is the best video ever to sumarize all the truth about our economy. Only smart guy will understand and make things different in their way
Great video! Totally agree! What happens to this system when it's disrupted, which it should be?!?! I believe the world population would naturally decline and therefore the demand for more "stuff." Ever wonder how the population increases? Cheap food! Wonder why there's an attack on women's reproduction system? To maintain lots of poor people in order to sell cheap food/stuff to billions of people in order to create billionaires.
Wtf is this bitch smoking
This honestly makes me furious. The Corporations of the world have just been pulling wool over our eyes and making the shittiest, least efficient trash possible so that they can make some stacks and waste our money and planet. Considering all the Control economy has over the government in the United States alone, I’m no longer surprised by why the idea of “ceasing the means of production” was created… Because the current means are made to just make more trash and harm the Earth, instead of keeping everything renewable.
Who's here because of the pollution crisis and self-education?
Dear Micheal Anton THAT IS ME!!!!!! 😁😁😁😁😁✌👍👍👍👌
recycling is enough god damnit.
I'm only here because of schoolI have so summarize that shitBut the only thing that I understood is that the USA are the main problem
So our federal government sets the regulatory standard for fabric flame resistance, not corporations: https://www.cpsc.gov/Regulations-Laws–Standards/Statutes/Flammable-Fabrics-Act
Yo solo vine por la tarea :u
I'm disappointed to hear the comments about school assignments.This is not about you. If you don't get how important this is and how much it affects every single person on the planet, I'm sorry we have to share it. I just wish people would understand and stop wanting so much unnecessary stuff.
People don't care how you found this video! It's more important that you understand the importance of this particular issue and change something in your everyday life in order to have a good impact on our planet.
i have blown a load to this video more times than i can count 🥵
Very informative. Thank you for helping are "one" Mother Earth, we all must do our part for future generations to live and survive.
Vicki Robin mentions this short film in her book, that’s why I’m here
A lot of the people watching this seem to be here because of school…. thank goodness the future generations are being educated on this!
Every person on youtube should wash this
Who is here for a school assignment? I'm from California and we have to summarize this?
I’ll admit I’m here because of school, but it’s still an important video. I have to write a research paper and I chose to do global warming, this video has helped me a lot because weather we like it or not global warming is real and we have to do something about it. And plus, why are all you guys hating that this video, all they’re doing is giving facts.
Wow. The textbook is WRONG! Anyone FactCheck this video? I heard this was presented at a school… ugh. I agree with the government sort of. Businesses being larger than government isn’t a bad thing. The US is the most eco friendly country on earth. Japan is the country who’s overfishing, the EPA is a monster who needs to be destroyed (is Godzilla available?)
I do agree that we over-consume, but that’s my personal opinion and I prefer people be free to choose how they want live.
Facts matter right?
Fact: the air is cleaner than it’s been in 100 year.
Fact: It’s baby formula that contains more contaminants—that’s why breast milk is safer.
Move those factories overseas… wait, we want manufacturing back because it creates jobs! Plus we’re able to create a lot cleaner than we used to.
The radio was a bad choice because Radio Shack is gone and the kids in the Congo dropped out of school for reasons more serious than that radio. War, government corruption and survival.
I could keep going, but you get my drift.
Just because someone makes a video about something, that doesn’t make it true. She “traveled the world” for ten years to figure this out? Really?
Do your own research!
If she did a video showing her family living in a super tiny house, with a compost garden and only bicycles I’d give more credence to this propaganda.
So many stupid young fellows write here they are here just because of a school. THEY TRY TO TEACH YOU STH IMPORTANT, IT'S NOT JUST A HOMETASK.
As a student I study at one of the most prestigious agricultural university (sometimes called "forestry") of Russia, my speciality is a landscape architecture. Obviously you might assume that one of the important disciplines I have on the first year of study is ecology, well, if it's so, you're totally right. Once on ecology lesson the dean of our faculty showed to my group this short film. What should I say about the reaction of the whole group? Only few of my acquaintances (most of them are my friends) were impressed, shocked, upset and even depressed, others were watching with a stone face. Actually an external perception of incoming information doesn't matter, right? But I'm absolutely sure no one of them was caring about it. In truth, we can observe the destructive consequences of human activity without animated movies with Annie Leonard. Quit interesting that people living in a civilized world and also having the ability to get education use their "gray matter" for thinking rarely. Videos like this exist to make your view on the world wider, to remind that you take the responsibility for your actions. Consider it. Thank you for your attention.
Anyone annoyed at the way she talks? Like the content is good and important, but I dont need everything delivered to me like I'm a toddler

WHY IS THERE MORE THUMBS DOWN THEN THUMBS UPS!??!
This video is important, but omg it's so boring and she goes on tangents every five seconds.
What are your sources in this video
Do the young people watching this care about the Earth?
Box mart = Wal-Mart
did anyone else realize that when she said we had used up a third of the earths natural resources in the past 3 decades the pie chart was 1 fourth not 1 third. i am here from a school assignment.
2019 school projects be like…….
The story of stuff should have talked more about their 10% material at the end of the video!

Be smart. Just get 2 heels 1 wide 1 skinny and alternate the 2 heels every time the phase comes.
I did this when I was in gr 11
Would you add polish subtitles?
Jesus Christ, you sound like a fucking conspiracy theorist, like whats next?are the FBI and Satan trying to take over my mind with chem trails?
I was left with my mouth open. It is incredible how dangerous we are.
Somebody I dont get dis help me pls.
Too left wing biased.
Is it just me, or does she kind of remind you of Jennifer Garner? (especially the voice)
Anyways, great video; it was super insightful, and had a well written script 🙂
i'm afraid greed and corruption are winning. because you forgot to mention 2 more by-products of consumerism – gullibility and APATHY! and this throw away mentality even dominates our "pop culture" with throw away celebrities, throw away music and throw away art. the elite have completely corrupted the very core of what it means to be human. idiots in Russia, india, china and brazil are rushing to see how quickly they can become "Americanized" and do their part in destroying our planet. meanwhile, the elite are installing police-state technologies into our consumer goods, shifting to a cashless, home-delivery, on-line driven consumer economy and the youth, of each new generation, just become more trusting and accepting of these scams and more oblivious to the deterioration of their own freedom and humanity. the future of humanity and our planet looks very grim indeed!
Seems like communist propaganda.Power Distribution:Capitalism for Cooperations. ✔️Socialism for Governments.✖️Communism for People.✖️
Wow, 10 years ago…… Damn
This is a great video that I believe only scratches the surface, but I'm glad it was made and that it will open peoples eyes to the issue. I do wish they would have gone a little into Animal Agriculture, I hate the way we treat living beings as products and that we are destroying our planet with pollution and deforestation just for "Bacon though" We can make some huge changes to this planet just by removing animals from the dinner table. "I understand that meat tastes good … and I know you think you’re just one person and it won’t change anything if you stop but that’s ignorant and stupid. If you have half a brain, you should know ‘one person’ adds up. Be smarter.” – Billie Eilish
Communist Propaganda, also factually incorrect. Misleading little kids. Scaring them irrationally.
A wonderful video that shows us why the system that we are living in is unsustainable, wasteful and even detrimental to our very well-being. There is no option, left now for us but to change for a more sustainable and green economy or else, we will continue to suffer more in the long run or even run the risk of running out of resources and spoiling this beautiful life-giving planet. Kudos to the presenter and her team. Please keep it up.
What a beautiful phrase at the end of the video 🙂 I really enjoy watching this, thank you for the great explanation ^^
I can't get past toxic in, toxic out. As a biochemist, I can assure you that this is simply not true. It's a simple fact of chemistry that if you mix two chemicals, you can get something with totally different properties. Take table salt, for example. Chlorine gas is highly toxic, sodium is highly explosive in water, but when you combine them they make something that we eat every day, even need.
Don't tell me you're here for class, POST THE ANSWERS!
Not a student. Interested because mindless consumption is killing our planet. Thank you for this!
why is this video so heavily opinionated?
Definitely, topics worth talking about but, this is definitely NOT the big picture as the narrator has implied that she has done. Sorry, too much bias blabbering and NOT enough balanced data and information to be even close to having credibility.
50% of tax money in the us is used for military.. holy shit
FUCK YALL CUZ OF YALL WE HAVE TO STUDY THIS SHIT AND ITS COMING OUT ON EXAMS. FKING DICK HEADS.
I do hate this USA and I do hate this planet, man destroys everything he touches I’m so upset, not only man destroys children and women
Every one lies every one steals and every man destroys everything, I wish I can get off this planet
I believe this is probably one of the most important videos I've ever seen on YouTube and everybody should be thinking about this! We are all students of life.
Join the war on waste and boycott products that do nothing but destroy the earth and planet. We should not lose our planet due to planet abusing, greedy corrupt few with nothing but dollar signs in their eyes. Bring global pressure on global corporates mining magnates etc; and those like that, who don't care about the enviroment, the local people, communities, making animals homeless, cutting down forests, and all for what? Money! Money can not buy back or put the earth and planet back to how it should be, once mankind has polluted and ruineddestroyed it all?
Discovered in now in 2019, this is really important for everyone to see!
The industrial revolution was built for crisis and to put your money in a rich man's pocket. That's the hole that we dug ourselves into and the first step to getting out is to put our shovel down. (Most of that is references from TV shows and movies.)
I watched this video for the first time at a Lunch and Learn at my place of employment. It has stuck with me for the last 10 years and it literally changed the way I look at consumerism. Before this video, I didn't even realize there was a problem. Now, I'm an advocate for Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Repair and I am a conscientious consumer. Thank you Story of Stuff for changing my impact and the way I think of our world. <3
This really freaked me out! Everyone should be forced to watch this!
I am from Philippines and i only watched this because of school assignment…Who is with me?
Watching this cause I gotta make a reflection paper from this haha helppp
Im here from school , I loved that video when they pay ata school, now im at home watching it 🙂
Came here to summarize this video 😂😂
trump be like: what the hell is saying this stupid girl¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
Apparently these people missed the lesson on extraction by Chee-na (Chinese). Large mineral extractions by China in Africa and Afghanistan is the norm. We're (USA) not putting this stuff in products, China is the one manufacturing this stuff. Let's see, we're spending an extreme amount of money on defense and the Corporations are huge? Eaglegards…
Só um aviso, não acredite em tudo o que vê.
Lies. "Less than 4% of original forest left"? Last time I checked forests covered ~30% of US land mass. The last time I checked was 2 days ago.
I find it rather disturbing that they make young people study this as truth.
Nice job! Just a minor point of fact though (but has huge ramifications for the green new deal): taxes don't fund government spending. The government makes decisions on what to spend, then spends the money into existence, and the tax comes back later. Spending is a political choice, so they can simply choose to spend on ecological solutions.
thank you so much
……………….maybe Thanos was not such a bad guy.
