Guess who got “Wa$ted!” at the Planet Green offices earlier this week? I’ll give you one clue: he’s got two thumbs and loves all things green. Yep, this guy!
On Monday, May 24, myself and a slew of fellow green bloggers headed to the Planet Green offices in NYC to attend a panel discussion with WA$TED! host Annabelle Gurwitch and participants from two recent episodes.
In case you aren’t already familiar with the show (which you should be since it’s on its third season), WA$TED! is a series that journeys into the lives of American households and businesses to audit trash, energy, transportation and water consumption in an effort to expose just how much our culture overconsumes. Participants in the series open up their lives and examine their own bad habits and how their overconsumption affects the world around them.
We’re pretty big fans of the show and were super excited to learn more about the third season, which premiered in April on Planet Green.
During the informal chat, Gurwitch shared inside stories about her experience hosting the popular show, including the rewards and challenges that come with helping everyday folks go green. Most interestingly, we had the chance to chat with the two Wa$ted alum and find out which eco changes made the most difference. For example, we were happy to hear that the woman who regularly threw out perfectly good clothes now donates them. Phew!
