Ecoluxe: TV Gone Green

Posted: Sep. 5th, 2008  |  By JustLuxe Team
Travel Shows: Ecoluxe is a new show on the Travel Channel that seeks to show how you don't have to be a backpacking hippie to have an environmentally responsible vacation; you can just as easily make it luxurious.

Hosted by Jayms Ramirez, an avid traveler and freelance photographer, the show explores the globe with an eye on sustainable travel and tourism.

There is no need to fear the great outdoors as Jayms introduces audiences to a new generation of green travel that leaves no human or ecological need untended. A resort in the Costa Rican rain forest has a spa but no electricity, in Australia the hotel room is a tree house and in Mozambique the lights and the stove are solar-powered!

In every episode, Jayms explores the world's latest luxury eco-lodges: safe havens where you can stay under the stars without missing out on any amenities. In North America, Jayms shows how to go camping in five-star style at the Costanoa Coastal Lodge and Camp, which offers heated tents and some of the best food and wine in the country.

Instead of staying in the tourist geared and ecologically unfriendly luxury hotels of Asia, soak up some local culture with Jayms while he explores luxury eco-friendly resorts of Bali, Fiji and more. He not only shows you where to stay but how to help and explore the natural world.

Along the way, Jayms takes pictures of the local scenery and wildlife as well as provides tips to make your next adventure luxurious and eco-friendly.

Check out this Green Home Show promoting awareness to the Green Movement Coming next year to TV, looks good. It is produced by Carbon America. Carbon America intends to promote awareness of the world's green movement and America's carbon footprint reduction. Their strategies is to show America and the world how being green can be affordable and the return on investment to the planet and our pockets can be sizable. Their intention is to help the global environment by appealing to the general public through the mass media. Specifically, by capitalizing on "Green Game Shows" and "Green Reality Show" trends. The Show is called "America's Gone Green" along with two spins off shows "Green Improvements" and "Green Seeding" "America's Gone Green" The Game format is as follows. The purpose of game show is for America to determine which contestants home is the greenest and has the smallest carbon foot print while retaining mass market appeal or "green sex appeal". Once the home has been qualified contestants receive cash to improve on their homes and carbon footprint and compete with other qualifying round winners. The format will be similar to other shows consisting of Subject Matter Experts (SME) as panel judges intermixed with celebrities or other notable figures that are currently identified with the "Green" movement. These SME judges could include professionals and members of organizations such as LEED, Green Building Council, and Energy Star. The final winner will receive a lump sum cash prize donation for to their favorite Green organization. The process will consist of qualifying rounds and a final round elimination. Outlined below are the proposed recommendations for each round.
