Below are a few videos that connect to the "Design for Change" project. The website has several more videos for viewing that show what children can do when they say "I can."

Kiran Bir Sethi shows how her groundbreaking Riverside School in India teaches kids life's most valuable lesson: "I can." Watch her students take local issues into their own hands, lead other young people, even educate their parents.

The Story of Stuff, Bottled Water & Cosmetics

Below you will find several videos by environmentalist, Annie Leonard. These videos about the environment, bottled water, cosmetics, etc. are well done, but reflect only the environmentalist's point of view. The video's could provide a good starting point for inquiry into the each of the issues presented.

The Story of Stuff - From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. http://storyofstuff.org


The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industrys attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

The Story of Cosmetics employs the Story of Stuff style to examine the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. The film will explore the health implications for consumers, workers, and the environment, and show how we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and toward safer alternatives.

The Story of Cosmetics is co-produced with the trailblazing environmental health activists at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The release will support the introduction of groundbreaking national legislation to regulate personal care product ingredients. 
 
JULY 21, 2010 -- Major loopholes in U.S. federal law allow the $50 billion beauty industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no monitoring of health effects and inadequate labeling requirements—making cosmetics among the least-regulated consumer products on the market.
