Where do the facts in your movies come from?
We here at the Story of Stuff Project take facts very seriously. Facts, in fact, are why we started making movies in the first place. We wanted to know the answers to burning questions like, ‘where does all of our garbage go?’ So we do research and speak with experts in the field to find answers to those questions.
To find the specific facts in each story, please visit our annotated scripts page. You can download the scripts of each our movies, with detailed line by line explanations of our sources—each article, journal, website and interview.
Our research takes us down many roads. You will find reports published by the EPA, books like Cradle to Cradle, articles from the Financial Times, and literally hundreds of other sources that helped us explain the story of stuff to you. Please read them. You never know where they may lead you.
