Watch green TV shows

By Shomik Ghosh |
Check out the va-va-boom in green TV these days. This slice of the media world is coming on strong. What's in it for you? Entertainment that may make you more eco-savvy.
Environmental programming used to mean watching a story about an oil spill or some other environmental mishap on the news or tuning into that granddaddy of all nature shows, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom with Marlin Perkins. Times have changed, and so has what we watch. From eco-reality shows to green how-to advice to a whole green network, environmental content is growing in TV land.

Watching green TV shows helps you go green because…

  • The knowledge gained while viewing eco-television programs may cause you to green your life in ways that may not have occurred to you. Plus, if you pass on your new environmental know-how or tell others about these shows, the green ripple effect may kick in as well.
  • Learning about wild creatures and their habitats may increase your understanding and appreciation of them. Placing more value on their continued survival may move you toward action for their well being and preservation.
