The Cost of Cool: Youth, Consumption & the Environment | The Video Project
Resource type: Video - Guide
Hosted by Baywatch star, Alexandra Paul. This video shows teenagers the environmental price it takes to have the latest, "coolest" stuff. From T-shirts to sneakers, it shows the impact of their manufacturing process on the world's resources. The consumer cost of these items are compared to their environmental cost and offers a revealing examination of over-consumption. This video encourages teens to think about their beliefs and understand the effects for themselves and the world if we each consume more wisely. This is an excellent video to springboard discussion.
A 29 page Educator Resource Guide is also available upon request.
