Green It. Mean It. Says Fox Talent

April 22, 2010

Talent from FOX fox.com/earthdayoffer viewers “Green Tips” on how to help and get involved with environmental issues.

“Green Tips” fox.com/earthday examples include:

From FAMILY GUY Sundays (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT):

  • Seth MacFarlane as Peter Griffin – “A cleaner planet needs the brightest of minds. Put your gifts to use by encouraging legislators, utility companies, schools and employers (six of those words I don’t know) to support green initiatives. Doing so will help curb pollution, create new jobs and change our future.”

  • AMERICAN IDOL finalists also provided “Green Tips” that are available on www.americanidol.com.

From HOUSE Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT):

  • Omar Epps – “Next time you travel, consider a permanent tag for your luggage. If travelers in the U.S. stopped using paper luggage tags during their trips, 60 million sheets of paper could be saved per year.”

  • Jesse Spencer – “Consumers will throw out about 400 million electronics this year. Sell, donate or recycle your old electronics rather than throwing it away. Check your area for drop-off locations.”

  • Olivia Wilde – “Next time you do your shopping, consider products with less packaging. Buy in bulk, and you’ll not only save money, but you’ll also be reducing your carbon footprint with fewer trips to the store.”

From AMERICAN IDOL Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) and Wednesdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed):

  • Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson – “Do you find yourself throwing out piles of leftover napkins from fast-food chains and restaurants? Try asking for less when you have a chance or store leftover napkins in your car for those unexpected messes. And don’t forget to always recycle.”

  • Ellen DeGeneres – “Did you know that oceans regulate the climate, generate oxygen and are home to some of the most fascinating creatures on earth? I do. ‘Cause I’m smart. But our oceans are being threatened by climate change, pollution and unsustainable fishing practices. There is good news though. You can help by using less plastic and creating less waste. That way, it won’t end up in our oceans.

From BONES Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT):

  • Michaela Conlin “Next time you’re shipping something fragile, consider using shredded paper instead of packing paper. When packed densely, your shredded paper will protect your items as effectively as foam and bubble wrap.”

  • John Francis Daley “Try biking, walking, bussing or carpooling to work whenever possible. Biking to work not only keeps you in good shape, but it also cuts down your daily carbon footprint. Use a basket or a carrier rack to help carry your belongings.”

  • Tamara Taylor “Moving your heater’s thermostat down two degrees in winter and up two degrees in summer saves over 2,000 pounds of CO2 emissions, which is over $100 on your annual energy bills.”

From FRINGE Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT):

  • Lance Reddick “A cleaner planet needs the brightest of minds. Put your gifts to use by encouraging legislators, utility companies, employers and manufacturers to support green initiatives. Doing so will help curb pollution, create new jobs and change our future.”

From LIE TO ME Returns Monday, June 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT):

  • Brendan Hines “When you travel with others, you increase your fuel efficiency. Find out about ride sharing and carpool opportunities in your area.”

  • Mekhi Phifer “How can you put more money back into your wallet and help others too? Talk to your local utility company about how you can get a free energy audit. Reduce your energy use. Save money. Create jobs.”

  • Monica Raymund – “If just 10 percent of U.S. households attached shut-off nozzles to their outdoor hoses, we’d save enough water to fill over 128,000 bathtubs every day.”

  • Kelli Williams “Consider using reusable grocery totes for your shopping needs or recycle your plastic grocery bags by putting them to use. You can even use a left-over tissue box to store them in.”
