About this book

Annie Leonard, creator of the internet film sensation The Story of Stuff, viewed over 6 million times, offers an astonishing, galvanizing book that tells the story of all the 'stuff' we use everyday – where our bottled water, mobile phones and jeans come from, how they're made and distributed, and where they really go when we throw them away. Our out-of-control consumption habits are killing the planet and threatening our health, but Annie provides hope that change is within reach. Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring, The Story of Stuff will be an instant classic.

With The Story of Stuff her charisma, her infectious curiosity, and her riveting message have extended her reputation far beyond environmentalists to average people of all stripes: she captivates audiences of schoolchildren and congressional sub-committees alike.
