ELAW partner Annie Leonard has worked tirelessly to protect the planet in a variety of ways. As a Greenpeace campaigner, she lived and worked with ELAW partners in Delhi, India (M.C. Mehta) and Dhaka, Bangladesh (Bangladesh Environmental Law Association).

In 2007, Annie created a video called “The Story of Stuff.”  She put it up on her website and it made its way onto YouTube.  Today, it was featured in the New York Times (the story was also published in many local papers.)  Kids, teachers — and parents — love the simplicity of the video and the importance of the message.  Enjoy it here:
