Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is a teen-hosted program that profiles individuals and organizations committed to environmental issues, reports on the latest recycling and nature conservation efforts and advances in renewable energies and carbon footprint-reducing technology, and offers advice on how to be more eco-wise while performing daily activities. The show also includes 'eco bytes' (bits of trivia related to environmental issues) and video footage uploaded by teen viewers to the show's website. This kid-friendly series uses peer reporting to address various environmental issues from a youthful point of view. By doing so, it enthusiastically encourages young adults to become more proactive about environmentalism rather than just talking about the importance of living green. It also stresses the positive impact that young people's efforts, no matter how small they might seem, can have on the larger world around them.
