Through the viral success of The Story of Stuff, additional animated films, and the recent publication of her book, The Story of Stuff, she has inspired millions to work toward a sustainable future. For her commitment to global environmental health and justice, the Breast Cancer Fund honored Annie in 2010 with the Andrea Ravinett Martin Strong Voices Award.
