Robert Dowling Professor Johann English 134-54 30 Nov. 2009 “The Story of Stuff” Rhetorical Analysis In Annie Leonard’s short film, “The Story of Stuff”, she argues that our  consumerism is having devastating effects on our society and environment.  Essentially  what she is investigating is, “where does all the stuff we buy come from, and where  does it go when we throw it out?” To better understand this Leonard spent years  investigating these very questions.  However, while I found a few of her arguments to be  both extremely valid and important, I found just as many arguments that left me shaking  my head.    We’ll start with the things Leonard does effectively.   For starters let’s touch upon  her credibility as a source.  At the beginning of the video she mentions that she spent  10 years traveling around the globe and in addition to that, if you explore the website a  bit, you can find that most of her arguments have evidence from multiple sources and  she shares links to websites with supplementary resources and materials.
