Normally, I try to stick to CH-based events, but a TV show casting focusing on green living recently popped into my inbox and it sounded interesting (and like a good opportunity to showcase our beautiful neighborhood!). Plus, participants will learn how to incorporate green techniques into their everyday lives and have the potential to win money! And who doesn't want some money right now, right? Wa$ted is an eco-green, home makeover show. We are currently casting our 2nd season and we are looking for energetic, unique, and diverse households in and around the tri-state area that might be interested in learning how to be a bit more green. Our mission is to show the viewing audience and the show’s participants’ ways and means by which they can reduce their impact on the environment and frequently save money in the doing. The program is fun but with a clear message. I am reaching out to you for help spreading the word about this unique opportunity among your readers and the Clinton Hill Community.
If you think this is something either you or your readers might be interested in it would be great if you could pass along our official casting call or post it to your blog. The ideal households are those who may not want to go green or are hesitant to buy into the green movement or maybe they are interested in being green but feel overwhelmed by all the information and options that are out there. I'd be pleased to explain the details with you further if you would like. So please feel free to give me a call or email and we can discuss the show in greater detail. In the meantime, I am including below a brief description of the show and what it entails along with a link to the Planet Green website.
Wa$ted is in its 2nd season for Discovery’s Planet Green. The goal of the show is to teach people to be less wasteful and to be more green. Our hosts, Annabelle Gurwitch and Holter Graham, want to show people how easy and fun it can be to save the environment and save money. We want to show that through some simple changes to your house and your lifestyle you can reduce your carbon footprint and save money without sacrificing your luxury and comfort. The eco-makeover will involve lifestyle tips, cool gadgets and products, and superficial changes to the home. And the best part – we help you save MONEY! With the potential to WIN money based on your success. Wa$ted focuses on a spectrum of environmental issues within households from their waste, energy, water and transportation consumption. With the help of our green experts we narrow in on certain problems facing each family that are both hurting the environment and the homeowner's bank account. Each episode offers dozens of customized, unconventional solutions in the form of appliances, gadgets and easy-to-maintain tips and tricks on how to best shrink ecological footprints, conserve energy and produce less trash, which in turn saves the homeowners (and viewers) some serious cash, both upfront and over the years.
