The Story of Stuff

leave a comment »

One of our volunteers this weekend told us about The Story of Stuff – an inspiring video that sheds even more light on what we’re up to at in.gredients. The video – which, at 21 minutes, is really a short film – focuses on “stuff,” from its resource extraction all the way to its sale, use, and disposal…a “fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns.”

As Story of Stuff says, all the “stuff” in our lives affects communities both here and abroad – and yet all we see is the stuff on the store shelf. The film “exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.” The issues associated with “stuff” are central to our store – we’re tackling the unnecessary, wasteful packaging associated with the world’s most common (and important) stuff: food.

Learn more about the Story of Stuff and the organization that spawned from their original video on their website.
