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.

Soon after, in July of 2010, Annie's Story of Stuff Project co-released The Story of Cosmetics with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (a project of the Breast Cancer Fund). This 7-minute online film tells the real story of toxic cosmetics ingredients and the laws that allow them. Ultimately, the film is building a wave of public awareness for the issue and support for the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010, introduced in Congress on the day of the film release.
