The show has a similar tone and theme to Living With Ed: celebrities open their home to the Green Team to explore ways to create a more eco-friendly living space. The shows are informational, but also fun. Otherwise, it could get boring in a hurry.
This week’s episode had Allison Janney (most recently from ‘West Wing’) getting furniture tips and solar panels installed. Previous episodes had Patrick Warburton and Ron Livingston featured.
I’m actually a little surprised that I only stumbled across this show. I have to thank the magic of TiVo for helping me find it. Either way, you should check out the show. If nothing else, it’s a great way to see how celebrities get excited by simple, but useful changes to their home.
On that note, the show is a success.
The Eco Zone Project website has a series of webisodes (really just informational cartoon shorts) to enhance your knowledge base. With titles such as “Unplug those unused electronics and save energy and money!”, you can’t go wrong.
The production of the show is also as Green as possible. From producing carbon offsets to cover flights, to using hybrid autos to carpool to locations, to providing catered organic food (served using recycled plates and utensils) the team behind the show is doing what it can to ‘walk the talk’.
