The Story of Stuff goes international

It's already been a year since the launch of The Story of Stuff - a tour through the materials economy that became an internet viral sensation. Now we've got something new to celebrate: The Story of Stuff has gone international and multi-lingual:

According to The Story of Stuff website:
Four and a half million English speakers have seen The Story of Stuff, but until now, the rest of the world has been left in the dark. There's no better time than the holidays to remind ourselves that happiness does not come from stuff, but from the riches of community connection and empathy for our planet and its living creatures. We hope you will get a little more happiness from sharing this message with your friends around the world:

Happy Holidays from Story of Stuff. If you don't find your language, and would like to help translate, please email us at:
