Annie Leonard has helped millions of people around the world understand and talk about the Story of Stuff. In December 2007, Ms. Leonard and her friends at Free Range Studios created a 20-minute movie about the way we make, use, and throw away stuff on the internet, unleashing a torrent of pent-up demand for honest conversation about the impacts of our consumer-crazed culture on people and the planet. In the five years since The Story of Stuff was released, Annie’s ‘cartoon about trash’ has been viewed more than 30 million times worldwide.
