Story of Stuff – The Next Chapter

Ever wondered about the environmental costs of the stuff we buy? CCF will be screening The Story of Stuff, one of the most watched environmental-themed online film of all time. It is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.

CCF will be screening this film, then facilitating a discussion on what will be the next chapter for each of us in our own “stuff stories.” We’ll tackle the issue of whether we can live well (or better!) with fewer material goods and how one goes about doing that in a consumption-saturated society.

This event will coincide with the start of our “Living Well with Less Stuff” blog, following in the steps of our successful “Eating Local” and “Eating Well on a Budget” blogs. Each participant will be taking on a personal consumption challenge that suits him or her and potentially blogging about it for CCF (that part is optional but quite fun!). If you’re interested in taking on a personal Living Well with Less challenge, don’t miss this event!
