Reviews and Festivals
"A terrific wake-up call for young adults, this is highly recommended."
— Video Librarian
"Recommended. This video does in fact make an impact on teenagers, and may be useful for starting class discussions in such areas as Environmental Studies. It may also be used as a starting point to make students evaluate how and why they use their purchasing powers."
— Educational Media Reviews Online
"The message to help the earth by getting along with less and enjoying one's own uniqueness is an important one that can lead to discussions in social studies, science, and home living classes."
— School Library Journal
"The Cost of Cool is a call for teenagers (and all Americans) to STOP and look more deeply at the consumer feeding frenzy that grips us all, even the most environmentally conscious. Its message is clear and timely... what each person does, or does not do, determines the future health of this planet."
— Erik Mollenhauer, Supervisor, EIRC Science and Social Studies Programs
"An engaging film that should capture the interest of our students. It clearly introduces a critical concept to our teens."
— Dr. Charles Khoury, Principal, Paramus High School
