What a way to start Mrs. Green’s New Year. Straight from their website: “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.”
Another successful movie – The Story of Bottled Water – illustrates how “manufactured demand” got Americans to use half a million water bottles PER WEEK!
As their longest serving staff person, Allison has been there, done that and seen it all! Think I’m excited? And we will ask Allison about their new release: The Story of Broke. OMG – the things we will learn. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
