Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this building show is squarely targeted at the most environmentally minded viewers; it's so firm in its stance against "toxic" construction practices that it may have you second-guessing that fresh coat of paint you've been thinking about. But guilt over your home's structure aside, there's not really any iffy content to object to, and you'll probably learn a lot about the environmental impact of waste and material misuse -- as well as get some ideas for making your home/remodeling projects "greener."
Educates viewers about healthier alternatives to common building techniques and explains how small changes like using recycled materials and incorporating natural energy can help the earth.
Consultants (builders, landscapers, architects) get some publicity for their work, as do the stores and suppliers that provide the building materials. Show sponsors like the Sierra Club and the Environmental Defense Center are also mentioned.
