GoingGreen Productions’ "GOINGGREEN – Every Home an Eco-Home" — is in nationwide release

Mary Proteau and Judith Vogelsang, are Southern California Producers, and we're so proud of them! They show the determination of everyday heroines who work hard to share their knowledge and vision!

"We shot Going Green at Eco-Home, a local environmental demonstration site (which is also the residence of the founder of the nonprofit Eco-Home Network, Julia Russell; I’m a former board member, now on the advisory board). E-HN also served as fiscal sponsor for the original production grants. The success of the NETA feed will, we hope, give us a leg up with funders for the next GoingGreen Productions show.

GoingGreen Productions and Eco-Home™ Network are pleased to announce that GOINGGREEN –Every Home an Eco-Home, a half-hour television program that brings the basics of eco-living to your door, premiered on PBS stations nationwide in March. Since that time, it garnered nearly 50% of all TV stations in the US! The program was distributed to PBS stations through the program service of the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA), and was made possible by funding from Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, Los Angeles County Department of Sanitation.

Narrated by environmentally aware actor, Tony Shalhoub (star of "Monk"), GOINGGREEN shows us how we can live earth-friendly lives on a limited budget, even in the middle of a city.

Mixing humor with everyday, affordable examples at home, GOINGGREEN tours the original Eco-Home with a group of middle-school kids who discover first-hand some simple, inexpensive ways to become more earth-friendly.

Guided by eco-pioneer Julia Russell, Founding Director of the non-profit, Eco-Home™ Network, the children learn how to conserve water through drip irrigation, soaker hoses, graywater systems and drought-tolerant landscaping.

They discover why and how to compost, what household hazardous waste may be lurking in their own homes, and how to use the sun's energy to light, heat and power their homes with sun pipes, solar hot water heaters and solar panels. The kids experience the delight of making their own organic tomato juice with tomatoes they picked right off the vine in Eco-Home's backyard garden. They learn, hands-on, how to compost, while having fun watching the progress of several serious-looking bugs that Julia describes as a crucial part of the "composting team." The kids ask questions and then come up with some of the answers!

GOINGGREEN was distributed to PBS stations through the program service of the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA).

Funding for the production of "GOINGGREEN – Every Home an Eco-Home" was provided by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, and the Los Angeles County Department of Sanitation, and was produced in association with Eco-Home™ Network.

Available on DVD for Families and Schools

GOINGGREEN is available on DVD from

For educators and librarians

A free 13-page Discussion Guide, perfect for individual, community or school screenings, is available free from each distributor, and is also available on the GoingGreen and Eco-Home™ Network web sites.

Suzanne Harle, Founder of the non-profit Green Planet Films, was delighted to be the first to acquire distribution rights to the program. "The number one request we get on our web site,” she said, “is for films about sustainable living, so now we are especially pleased to be able to offer GOINGGREEN to viewers."

Green Planet Films distributes nature and environmental DVDs from around the world and seeks to preserve and protect our planet by educating the public about the science, beauty, and fragility of the natural world.
