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."
