The Story of Stuff

We have a problem with Stuff. We use too much, too much of it is toxic and we don’t share it very well. But that’s not the way things have to be. Together, we can build a society based on better not more, sharing not selfishness, community not division.

The Story of Stuff is a short animated documentary about the life cycle of material goods. The documentary is critical of excessive consumerism and promotes sustainability.

“You cannot run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely” Annie Leonard

This film was screened as a part of the ‘Story of Stuff’ event on Thursday 16th October 2014.

The focus of the night was to help people to generate less waste & also save money. In addition to the movie there were up-cycling demos, discussion, free food & drink, & more besides. There were even some ‘goodies’ given away.

This FREE event was jointly run by Southall Transition, Ealing Council and HelpLink and was hosted at:

The Dominion Centre, 112 The Green, Southall [UB2 4BQ]. Doors opened at 7.30PM.
