On June 4, a new “all green tv channel” just began called Planet Green (part of the Discovery Channel Network). Planet Green broadcasts such shows as Alter Eco (a green version of a home/lifestyle makeover series), Greenovate (green ways to renovate to save energy costs), and Greensburg (13 part documentary series on the green rebuilding of the Greensburg, KS town hit by the tornado last year). The premier of the Greensburg series begins Sunday June 15, 2008 (check your local listing for time/channel). Anyone thought of hosting this premier at your library as a community/school event?
The Planet Green Web site also has many articles, info on the tv shows, and videos clips on range of topics such as home, garden, tech, health, and work, including some recent ones on LEED certified professionals and greening in your community. Don’t forget to check out this article about the the head librarian of Kiowa County who lost her house in the tornado – one of the homebuilders to be featured in the Greensburg series.
