The story of stuff

The story of stuff

One of the first books I’ve read about sustainability. It describes our connection to products and the way we use them. It is based on the movie which was presented in 2007. There was a lot of research executed before making this movie and book. (https://www.storyofstuff.org/)

The book is illustrated with personal stories, which makes it sometimes more emotional than entirely about facts. Some figures and numbers are hard to check, however they help to point the issue: our stuff-obese. We are producing so much stuff that we’re bounching against the boundaries on many ways. The sourcing of materials, the transport of products and the huge issue of waste in this lineair economy are problems which are adressed in this book.

The next project of this organisation is the story of plastic, which will soon be released (https://www.storyofplastic.org/)
