  When Annie Leonard and her friends at Free Range Studios set out in 2007 to share what she’d learned about the way we make, use and throw away Stuff, they thought 50,000 views would be a good result for her ‘20-minute cartoon about trash.’ Today, with over 15 million views and counting, The Story of Stuff is one of the most watched environmental-themed online movies of all time.

 For those who haven’t seen these videos, it’ll only take 20 minutes to open your eyes about our waste. Warning: you may never shut them again. Kid and family friendly, easy explanations of consumer products to waste stream.
