Who was it who said that being green isn’t so easy? That’s right, a cute little hand puppet, but here’s a reality check, Kermie. We’ve actually made such sweeping advances on the eco-front that consumers can now drive, shop, dine, decorate, and even couch surf on a planet-friendly wave of ever-lovin’ greenosity. Those who want to learn how to make sustainable lifestyle changes or simply just expand their range of green-themed knowledge can plunk down on the couch and get lost in the eco-themed programming offered by the Discovery Channel (Shark Week and Great Migrations, anyone?) or Robert Redford’s Sundance Channel.
Here’s a heads-up for fans of the network famed for its insect porn and lazy environmentalism. Redford is kicking things into eco-overdrive with their upcoming season of Iconoclasts, which profiles many of the individuals who have been an integral part of Ecorazzi’s hallowed halls for years.
- How about Jane Goodall, for starters? The dedicated primatologist welcomes Charlize Theron to her Republic of Congo stomping grounds at the Tchimpounga chimpanzee sanctuary that she established back in 1999. The episode airs Saturday, October 2.
- On Saturday, October 16, Aussie actor Hugh Jackman will either gush or rue the day that he peeped about potentially becoming a vegan while penning the foreword for Brendan Brazier’s “Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Life“…or maybe that’s a stretch. He IS, however, spending time with world renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichtenguess during this particular episode, so the topic of food and diet is bound to come up. Guess you’ll just have to tune in to find out!
- Jackman‘s fellow countrywoman Cate Blanchett – who we’ve praised for her continued dedication to greening up the Sydney Theatre Company — will be giving eco-scientist Tim Flannery a behind-the-scenes tour of her organization’s green facilities on October 23. Plus, they’ll chat about Flannery’s efforts to reintroduce the nearly extinct kimono dragon back into the Aussie wild.
