Oprah Winfrey is continuing her annual ode to Earth Day with a green-themed show spotlighting trash disposal, ocean pollution, and saving green by going green. Here’s the bit from her site:

Do you know where your trash really goes? You might think differently about garbage after you watch this show! Plus, how going green could save your family thousands.

Previous Oprah Earth Day specials have featured Julia Roberts helping out with composting (we also found out she doesn’t wear deoderant), Matt Damon speaking about reducing junk mail through an org called GreenDimes, and other guest appearances by green folks like Simran Sethi and Sophie Uliano. Knowing Oprah, there could definitely be some surprise celebrities waiting in the wings. Don’t forget to tune in!

    All these activities and events are very admirable but the thing is that Earth Day should be everyday and not only on April 22nd.

    I mean, after all this is our only home…

    And it’s so easy going green! You don’t have to change your entire life. It’s the little things that summed up make all the difference.

    It’s cool to see the celebrities speak out given their influence, but what about ordinary people doing extraordinary things?

    For example, extreme swimmer Christopher Swain ( this morning is plunging into the ice cold Atlantic Ocean to do a 1,000 mile free crawl from Marblehead, Massachusetts to Washington DC to call attention to the challenges we’re facing as an ocean planet.

    More importantly, though, he is coming ashore to help 2,000 classrooms develop projects to protect the oceans. His story is extraordinary.

    He is the first person to swim the entire length of the Columbia River, the Charles River, the Hudson River, and Lake Champlain, surviving collisions with boats, 12-foot waves, Lamprey Eel attacks, and waste contaminated with everything from arsenic to nuclear waste. Christopher has made water-based education presentations to over 53,000 North American schoolchildren.

    Oprah, meet a real change agent!
