The Story of Stuff website explains:

We know all about the problems — from climate change to income inequality to political corruption. Our movies and other media focus instead on the big, exciting innovations driving the environmental and social change we need, as well as the little things individuals and communities can do to make a difference.

The Story of Stuff Project is “Community-Minded,” “Solutions-Focused” and “Action-Oriented,” and they have just made their first feature-length expose documentary called The Story of Plastic.
