COD Sustainability Film Series: The True Cost

April 18 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST

The College of DuPage Sustainability Film & Discussion Series promotes film as a tool for education, civic engagement, and activism in the movement for building sustainable and resilient communities and protecting our natural resources for future generations. All screenings will be followed by a discussion led by faculty and community partners.

All films are shown at 7pm in Room 1234 in the Health and Science Center at COD. Arrive a half hour prior to the showing to learn more about the topic addressed, and to connect with local community organizations on what is happening in our region to address the issues raised in the film.

Free and open to the public.


About the Film:

The True Cost

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
