The Story of Stuff

This is a really cute and really good 20 min. video about the true life-cycle of the consumer goods people buy and throw away every day.

It also goes along very well with the BBC report The Century of the Self. These two dovetail very nicely.

The question you gotta ask yourself: is this really all there is? Is there nothing more to our existence than going to work and buying stuff and then wondering why your life feels empty?
