Whenever there is a holiday or major event, media geeks like to make the most of it by immersing themselves in everything related to that major event. April has two significant days related to the environment: Earth Day and Arbor Day. So, there really isn’t a lot of TV out there celebrating Arbor Day but we do have a lot of programming related to ‘environmentalism’ in general which has been collected in this handy dandy guide.
This time around, the focus is on sitcoms. Environmentalism can get pretty preachy and drama and documentaries on the subject are enlightening but sometimes not that entertaining. So here are 10 entertaining television episodes with an environmental theme.
