Did you know that American teenagers spend over
150 billion dollars annually? Teens are buying more "stuff" than ever
before, and the effects of accelerated levels of consumption are at the
very root of many of the environmental challenges we face today.
In this revealing new
series, the best-selling, award-winning film Cost
of Cool is paired with the exciting new release, Think
creating the perfect tool to introduce this modern
American issue to any classroom.
Begin with powerful
discussion starter Think Twice, a clever,
fast paced ride through a typical day at school
for two seniors and examine the motivation behind
the impulse to buy.
Hosted by Baywatch star, Alexandra
Paul, Cost of Cool then explores the issue in detail
by examining implications of current levels of teen
consumption and equipping viewers with the information
and resources they need to make a positive difference.
Includes a 29-page curriculum guide aligned with 23 national
