The Story of Stuff screening


To celebrate “Bedford’s April is Earth Month” the Katonah Village Library is pleased to co-sponsor with Conversations for Action a screening and discussion of The Story of Stuff plus The Secret Lives of Cell Phones and some selected short films by local students. This event will be held on Sunday, April 13, from 3 until 4:30 p.m. with refreshments at 3 and the film screening at 3:30 followed by a discussion.

The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled, humorous look at the underside of production and consumption. It explores the connections between a vast array of environmental and social issues, and points the way toward a more sustainable and just world.

The discussion will be led by Westchester resident Don Weeden, Executive Director of the Weeden Foundation. The Weeden Foundation is an environmental philanthropic foundation that focused on protecting biodiversity and promoting sustainable consumption of natural resources. Don is on the steering committee of the Environmental Grantmaker Association’s Sustainable production and Consumption Working Group, a sponsor of the film.

Conversations for Action is a local environmental action group based in the Town of Bedford.

This program is free and open to the public but reservations are appreciated. Please e-mail your reservation to
