The Story of Stuff

An insightful, clever video on the cost of consumer society.

The "worth it" moment? For every pound of trash you toss, 70 pounds were created to make that product or packaging.

Damn.

Nice video. I tried to find a YouTube video of that truck commercial for the year end sale ... the one where people go out and destroy their old car/truck even though it's perfectly good just so that they can buy a new version. I'm sure there are millions of examples of the "perceived obsolescense" out there ... but those commercials pretty much nail it.
