The Story of Bottled Water

From the animators who brought us The Meatrix, Store Wars, and The Story of Stuff, comes a new chapter in The Story of Stuff saga: The Story of Bottled Water.

If you haven’t already watched the 20-minute long “Story of Stuff” you should.  It’s pretty good, and the payoff in the end is that the writter/narrater Annie Leonard actually proposes some solutions and fresh ideas.  A refreshing reward for watching yet another depressing info-film about how royally screwed up the ___(insert topic / issues here) ____ is.

The Story of Stuff examines how economic policies of the post-World War II era ushered in notions of “planned obsolescence” and “perceived obsolescence” —and how these notions are still driving much of the U.S. and global economies today.

The issue itself is relevant and important.  But mostly i’m just a huge fan of Free Range Studios.  So, if nothing else, comb through their video archives and relish in the info-activism animation wonderland that resides there.
