GOINGGREEN – Every Home an Eco-Home

A half-hour, family-friendly program that presents eco-living basics with humor and down-to-earth examples, narrated by Tony Shalhoub. GOINGGREEN answers the question, What can I personally do to help solve the environmental problems facing us today?

GOINGGREEN tours the original Eco-Home™ with a group of middle-school kids who see first-hand some simple, inexpensive ways to become more earth-friendly. Guided by eco-pioneer Julia Russell, Founding Director of the non-profit, Eco-Home Network, the children learn how to conserve water through drip irrigation, soaker hoses, graywater systems and drought-tolerant landscaping. They discover why and how to compost, what household hazardous waste may be lurking in their own homes, and how to use the sun’s energy to light, heat and power their homes with sun pipes, solar hot water heaters and solar panels. The kids experience the delight of making their own organic tomato juice with tomatoes they picked right off the vine in Eco-Home’s backyard garden. They learn how to compost, and have fun watching the progress of several serious-looking bugs that Julia describes as a crucial part of the ‘composting team.’ The kids ask questions and then come up with some of the answers!

GOINGGREEN shows us how we can live earth-friendly lives on a limited budget, even in the middle of a city. Narrated by triple Emmy-Award winner and eco-savvy actor Tony Shalhoub. The Directors Guild of America nominated GOINGGREEN for a TV Award in Children's Programming. Running time is 24:20 mins.
