While everyone seems to be going green these days, any fan of Extreme Makeover Home Edition (yes I confess!) knows that Ty Pennington is no stranger to going green on the show. However, he stopped by Good Morning America to share some basics of his green know how in a simple and tangible way.

Ty was also speaking about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Awareness Day where he will be hosting hosting the ninth annual ADHD Experts on Call event on Wednesday, September 19.
