The Cost of Cool shows teenagers grappling with what it takes to be “cool” and the environmental price we pay to have the latest, “coolest” stuff. This video looks at everyday items, from T-shirts to sneakers, and tracks the effect of their manufacture on the world's resources. Teenagers examine their learned buying patterns, recognizing that much of the stuff they acquire is not needed. The Cost of Cool provides insight into ways we can enjoy a sustainable, high quality life while being less focused on personal possessions and consumption.
