Sundance Channel has announced it's ordered Eco-Trip: The Real Cost of Living, a new reality series that will trace the origins and environmental impact of common, everyday items.

Hosted by Adventure Ecology founder David de Rothschild, Eco-Trip will follow the ecological life of different everyday items, including everything from a cotton t-shirt and salmon to a cell phone and bottle of water. 

Each half-hour episode will begin by chronicling the production of each item and end with its disposal -- touching upon the environmental, social and health effects it has along the way. 

In addition, Eco-Trip will also educate viewers on decision they can make to live a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

Sundance Channel ordered eight episodes of Eco-Trip, which is currently slated to debut next year.

The series is produced by NBC's Peacock Productions, with Laura Michalchyshyn and Lynne Kirby serving as executive producers.

"[De Rothschild] has a wonderfully engaging and inquisitive personality that will charm Sundance Channel viewers as they travel with him to learn about the impact that the production of everyday objects has on our health and on our planet," said Michalchyshyn.  "And once again we are delighted to be working with the team at Peacock Productions."
