THE STORY OF STUFF

 
 DV 0368  The Story of Stuff.  (Tides Foundation, 2009.  Audience: Junior High through Adults.)

This presentation answers the questions where does stuff come from and where does it go when disposed of.  It describes the materials economy and how it interacts in a real world with people who live and work in the system.  The United States is valued and measured by how much it can consume.  Consumption is seen as a way of life with no regard for stewardship, thrift and resourcefulness.  Planned and perceived obsolescence is also discussed.
