True, a lot of environmentalists promote reading over television. A nice intimate dinner and good chats with friends over a night at the movies. And of course we know it’s the better way to let our kids play outside before we let them switch on the computer games and consoles.
But we can’t be superheros all the time. Sometimes we need that downtime, some time to be couch potatoes in front of the television. Kids too.
If you live in the United States you’ll find the best cable deals, with dozens of channels, or more, that will interest you –– even if you consider yourself a serious environmentalist.
Building one of the most environmentally-savvy green buildings in the United States, Comcast – the largest cable, phone and Internet provider in the United States, is setting the pace on how overlooked services like media, communications and entertainment can be greened.
It is setting an agenda for global companies to follow.
Whether you are into animal, nature or ecological shows at all, there are plenty of environment-related shows served by Comcast from PBS, Discovery, Nat Geo, Nat Geographic Wild, and channels like Animal Planet.
Animal Planet is one of our favorite shows as it captivates audiences with adventures from the wild kingdom, all the way to adventure with domestic animals like Kitty in the backyard. Meow.
Discovery is the best way to take a comfy seat into exploring your world; with programming that includes series on undisturbed habitats, to man’s place in the city and environment, to pure environmental programming. (Take note that Discovery bought the blog TreeHugger a few years ago, adding to its commitment to serve the environmental ethos.)
And National Geographic? No home is complete without access to this world-changing programming, showing the culture of people and our fascination with our natural and built environment from the arctic, to the tropics to the heartlands of Africa.
Of course people will always be looking for special Comcast Cable deals and Comcast Internet deals and like with any company it pays to shop around a bit first and negotiate a price before you sign into a package. But buying all your services in one package (see Comcast Packages here) certainly will save you a lot more money as well as excessive paper and time from extra bills and bill management.
