Green Your Movie-Watching: Eco-Friendly Flicks

Green filmDuring those two-hour summer blockbusters, it’s easy to suspend your eco-habits along with disbelief. This week's tips offer ways to get a greener grip on movie-watching.

Tip #1: Watch Environmental Epics

Instead of the usual romcom, war drama, or slasher, why not see a green-themed feature? They can be just as fun (think Avatar) even while inspiring environmental action.

Think eco-conscious movies are hard to find? They're not: Each Friday, the Green Life reviews a new eco-film, and Climate Crossroads maintains a Green Films Fan Club where members share suggestions.

Tip #2: Choose Concessions Wisely

Tip #3: Opt for Low-Energy Electronics

Tip #4: Swap DVDs

Tell us: What's your favorite green-themed movie?
