Here at re-nest, we get ideas for posts from a number of places -- newspapers, friends, reader emails, sometimes even our pets.
But this is a first (for me at least) -- the inspiration for this post comes straight from my grandma, who happened to catch a recent episode of The EcoZone Project.
She took detailed notes and mailed them to me (along with a number of green-related clips from the Los Angeles Times).
To be totally honest, I hadn't even heard of the show, which is airing on CBS in the Bay Area -- but now I'm watching bits and pieces of it on the EcoZone web site.The concept of the show is pretty straight forward: Daisy Fuentes and her "green team," which includes Simran Sethi (who you might recognize from the Sundance Channel's "The Green") and Ryan Sutter (who you might recognize from "The Bachelorette" -- seriously) visit celebrities and help them green their homes.
They've already greened the homes of Ron Livingston, Patrick Warburton, and Allison Janney (who, if you haven't seen it yet, is unbelievably brilliant in "Juno"). Up next is Party of Fiver Scott Wolf.
If you're curious, the web site has a number of clips from each of the three episodes that have already aired.
Have you seen the show? Did you learn anything valuable? Should we try to catch the next episode?
