Planet Green (tv) T Shirt

Posted on/at 9:34 AM by Web Thing

My ecological footprint is smaller than yours! (<---that would look great on a tee shirt, free for the taking) Have you all seen Planet Green TV? Dare I say it's more addictive than Food Network TV? DirecTV Satellite subscribers can find this channe1 on 289.

************ TV Show T Shirts ***************

I'm not sure how I happened upon it, actually, but now when my tv is on (which was constantly before I was labled an Eco-Criminal for doing so) it's on this channel.

For those of you unfamiliar, here's the lineup:
(The following information was taken from http://planetgreen.discovery.com/tv/ and is used here soley to display an accurate representation of the programming they offer.

Alter Eco
Alter Eco is an eco lifestyle and makeover series presented by Adrian Grenier and his entourage of green activists, experts, and friends. As all work and no play makes for a dull show, Adrian always concludes Alter Eco with a meal or a gathering where he and his green team celebrate their accomplishments for the week.

Saving over 40% on energy bills while also increasing property value by 25% sounds impossible, but Greenovate shows viewers just how to make this lofty dream a reality in their own households.

On May 4, 2007, a deadly tornado struck Greensburg, Kansas, ripping the town to shreds. Ninety-five percent of the town was destroyed, eleven lives were tragically lost, and survivors were left without homes, businesses, schools and basic city services. Greensburg was gone, and it seemed that all was lost for its residents.

G Word
Being green is no longer just for granola-loving hippies. It's a lifestyle, an attitude, a state-of-mind, and it's shaking up the pop-culture landscape. Forget what you think you know about what being green means and get ready for G Word...

Anyway, if effeciency, solar, electric and wind power and making a difference fascinate you, go check it out. Planet Green

So far my approach to watching this channel is very similar to my approach with Food Network. Just as I can be found eating a bologna sandwich while Iron Chf Flay makes some tasty treat with some exotic fish, I can also be found watching Wa$ted (highly recommended program, BTW) with 2 computers running, alll the lights on and drinking a 16 oz bottle water - but I'm working on it. Awareness is the first step, right?
