The Story of Broke (Video Trailer)

The creator of The Story of Stuff, The Story of Cosmetics, The Story of Bottled Water, and Loop Scoops, Annie Leonard is now making (or has made) The Story of Broke. You can watch the trailer below. As you can see, it’s actually the story of the 99%, political corruption in the U.S., and the change that Occupy Wall Street is pushing hard to bring about. She does a wonderful job, as always, of conveying the essence of a somewhat complex issue in a fun, clear, and succinct way. Check it out:

The Story of Citizens United v. FEC {VIDEO}

If you haven’t learned about this case yet, now’s the time. This is perhaps the biggest story of the last decade (and that’s saying a lot). The results of this story have influence over every environmental issue out there, and much more.

Now, beyond telling us what has happened, Annie Leonard (yes, of “The Story of Stuff”) tells us how we can help create change that can address the problem that has landed on our lap. Check it out.
