Sustainable Living: Media Resources

When not out and about fighting the green fight, I am a couch potato watching and listening to these worthwhile sustainable living programs.

PLANET GREEN (channel 286):

Focus Earth with Bob Woodruff
Network anchor Bob Woodruff hosts this news magazine which deals 100% with environmental and sustainable living issues.

G Word
Green News Magazine
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.
