Living with Ed, Season 1
In this hit TV-show, aired on HGTV, actor and environmentalist Ed Begley and his wife, Rachelle Carson Begley, open their home (and those of their closest celeb friends) to the public, showcasing the myriad ways one can live more sustainably. Begley himself uses a stationary bike to run his toaster oven, a solar oven for cooking, and created his white picket fence out of recycled milk bottles. Sound extreme? Perhaps, but ultimately the message of this show is that every little bit does make a difference. In each episode, you’ll follow Begley as he travels from such locations as Jay Leno’s garage (yes, his car collection is run on alternative fuels) to the Sundance Film Festival. You’ll not only leave each segment with simple tips to reduce your footprint, but also a smile on your face, as watching the Begleys green the world is sometimes a bit amusing.
