Besides the fact that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition isn’t very green, I have two big issues with the program. One: I wonder how the family pays for the maintenance and property taxes once the cameras are gone. Two: It makes me blubber like an idiot. Putting all of that aside, it’s nice to see EMHE taking part in an eco-contest.
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is launching Educate To Escape, a sweepstakes sponsored in part by Ford, to provide up to $250,000 in eco-friendly improvements to one school. Along with that, Ford will also give away a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid to one lucky viewer. The Ford Escape Hybrid boasts 34mpg and uses a combination of electric and gas to help reduce carbon emissions. Sexy stuff!
True, this does smell like a “look how green we are” promotion, but at least they’re putting a quarter of a million bucks into a noble cause. If you’re school needs to be pimped out in green, visit EducateToEscape.com and help Ty “MOVE THAT BUS!!!!!!!!”
