planet green vergeHave you been desperately craving a couple of fresh new eco-themed television shows to feast your eager greenie eyes on? Talk about impeccable timing — Planet Green’s got your back! The two year old eco-tainment cable channel “which is designed to activate people in the green space” is looking toward the future by embracing the trend of conscious, thoughtful living. As such, they want to sate our appetites by offering a diverse buffet of leafy green shows that will expand on their already engaging and provocative brand of sustainable lifestyle storytelling.

Beginning on Monday, March 29th, they’ll be rolling out a tasty new programming block called VERGE – championing “the misfits, mavericks and innovators who challenge the status quo and are on the verge of changing their world and creating a better tomorrow” – in the hopes that their fresh lineup will stoke our primal eco-hunger. Referring to their content as a natural evolution, Planet Green is interested in inspiring viewers to become emotionally invested in the stories of today’s change-makers to such a degree that we might even adjust our mindsets and personally evolve as more thoughtful and caring global citizens.

Each day, seven days a week, viewers can tune into three unique hours of primetime programming that will complement their transition to a 24 hour schedule, including offerings from Ed Begley Jr. and documentarian Morgan Spurlock as well as new concepts like Future Food (about the technology-obsessed chefs behind Chicago’s Moto Restaurant) and Blood, Sweat and Takeaways (featuring the month long awakening of 6 fast food junkies as they digest the dark side of how their beloved eats are really produced). Along with returning favorites like the Annabelle Gurwitch-hosted WA$TED are a few additional eco-specific shows to keep an eye out for:

The Fabulous Beekman Boys, which follows the adventures of two would-be-farmers who are a little too cosmopolitan for their own good.

Planet Mechanics, featuring the experiences of two engineers that are determined to fix the world, one DIY project at a time.

Operation Wild, which chronicles the real-life eco-warrior experiences of Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission officers while they’re on the clock.

Greensburg, the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced epic docu-series which details the comprehensive rebuilding and eco-transformation of one Kansas town that was entirely leveled back in 2007.

Sounds lip-smackin’ good — time to get your couch potato on!

    Well anything beats Smash Lab, which might be an interesting show, but doesn’t belong on the Planet Green channel.
