Of course we need to buy things to live and enjoy life, but do we really need so much? Follow Jeremy and Jessica through a typical day at school in this clever, fast-paced look at the issue of teenage consumption. Find out what today's average teenage girl spends more than $18,000 on in her lifetime (hint: it's not food or clothes). See where the components in your TV and stereo come from and trace the environmental impact of their production. Learn about the effects of accelerated teenage consumption, and discover simple things to keep in mind every day to have a positive impact on our planet. Created in collaboration with an actual high school classroom, this video uses the voices of real teens to question the motivation behind current levels of consumption, and is sure to facilitate classroom discussion about the causes and effects of this modern issue. Companion to Cost of Cool.
