My girlfriend’s mother recently made me aware of a new channel on cable called Planet Green, and I haven’t been able to stop watching! The following information is directly from the planetgreen.com website:
About Planet Green
Planet Green is the first and only 24-hour eco-lifestyle television network with a robust online presence and community. Launched in June 2008, our on-air content reaches 50 million homes, offering more than 250 hours of original green lifestyle programming. Both online and on-air, Planet Green’s content is entertaining, relevant, and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. By representing a broad range of ideas and perspectives, Planet Green is taking an active role in generating conversation and motivating individuals to take action when it comes to improving the environmental status of our planet.
Through Time Warner Cable in NYC, Planet Green is channel 114. This addition to cable television is not just an alternative to much of the mindless “reality” shows, and ‘celebrity gossip” dedicated programming that seems to dominate right now, but it’s also extremely educational. Children of all ages will find a wealth of information and inspiration for things from Science Projects to book reports on the issues that will only become more and more relevant, especially for them. Parents may also gain an arsenal of activities in which to participate that may be available in your own neighborhood, for you and your family to take part in helping make your community or your own personal home more sustainable and energy-efficient. It’s exciting to see how easily and creatively people are coming up with the alternatives and ground-breaking answers that can help solve the biggest problems our planet faces today. Not everyone has to be a so-called “green/sustainability/organic fanatic,” but Planet Green does give you the information you need to know that can help you become more efficient, save money for yourself and your family, and make less of an impact on your environment at the same time. We all need to pitch in at least a little. Gold Star for Discovery Communications, Inc. on this one.
