Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this science-oriented series -- which discusses the impact that our daily consumption choices have on the planet -- features easy-to-follow explanations that are often presented with a sense of humor (as well as some helpful solutions). Buying organic products is strongly encouraged. Tweens interested in science and the environment will be drawn to the series, but sensitive viewers may find themselves a little overwhelmed by the message that even the smallest choices can ultimately have a major negative impact on the earth.
