Abstract:

The U.S. has 5% of the world's population, but uses 25% of the world's resources. This statistic reflects one type of impact our consumption habits have on the earth's resources, this film examines the place of teenagers in the cycle of consumerism, and the environmental price paid to have the latest, "coolest" stuff. Teenagers grapple with their learned buying patterns, and question whether they actually need much of the stuff that they feel they must acquire to be happy and live well.
