Mrs Green and the team from Galileo Pro TV

You remember last month we spent a couple of days with a German TV crew? They followed us around for a couple of days scrutinising our every move to see how we managed to reduce our waste so much.

Eva and the crew from Galileo TV spent time filming the ‘one bin family’, as we seem to be called, for her ‘Green 7 series’. The series highlighted environmentally-based stories from around the world.

Many of you couldn’t see the programme because of international issues with watching the film, but we’ve managed to pop it on You Tube in all its glory. Due to technical issues our heads are somewhat distorted, but there you go 😀

Obviously it’s been dubbed with German, but you should be able to get the jist of it. It’s a lively segment and really gets the message across.

So if you missed it first time you should be able to watch it now!

Galileo is the number 1 science programme in Germany which airs for an hour each evening and is available in Austria and Switzerland too.

It’s about 12 minutes long, so make yourself a zero waste cuppa, sit back and enjoy

    How nice to finally watch (though I don’t speak a word of German!). I was absolutely delighted to see the family playing molkky in the garden! Our Finnish friends introduced us to the game, and we immediately sent away fo ra set, though it hasn’t caught on in the U.S.

    I enjoy how the camera crew went shopping with you. I think that “teachin gby seeing & doing” is an effective method of education in the zero-waste movement.

    Nice piece!

  2. seeing is believing–and i do hope many can now see your subtle and serious video. looking forward to many more such short examples of right living–for neighbors, schools and public institutions…this was produced and filmed with creative and focused mindset.. thanks for you-tubing it.

    @CarSue: Ahhh, Molkky is a lot of fun and you can get your children to do some sneaky maths without them realising 😉

    @nadine sellers: Hi Nadine 🙂 I hope you are well – we thought the creativity of the filming was great too !

    I believe what you have achieved is an absolute inspiration to everyone, even those with teenage children. I have been recycling for many years, even before our Local Authority introduced doorstep recycling and have now managed to reduce our waste to on average one bag from the inside of a cornflakes packet every two weeks with three adults in our household. There are so many tips on your blogs that make this even easier. I have for some months now been taking my own plastic containers (usually icecream containers) to our local butcher who is more than happy to serve me ‘carrier bag free’

    @Jackie: Hi Jackie, thanks for your lovely comment and congratulations on your own success; you’re an inspiration 🙂

    Hi everyone,

    I think its amazing what you’re doing! I am German and I saw your video about a year ago on tv (Galileo). As I’m a teacher, I’m going to show this video to my students tomorrow so that they’ll have a great example of environmental awareness! 🙂
