Annie Leonard is the writer, director and star of the popular video "The Story of Stuff," a 21-minute video that clearly lays out the problem of our societal addiction to stuff — owning stuff, buying stuff and throwing out old stuff. It’s not an easy message to hear, since nearly all of us are complicit in the problem of stuff, but it’s one that we all need to hear. Leonard is responsible for getting people to at least think about the problem, even if they all don’t agree with her. She has since branched out and produced videos about cap and trade, bottled water, cosmetics, electronics, and the story of Citizens United v. FEC.
