On Alter Eco, the lifestyle and makeover show on Discovery Channel’s Planet Green network, Adrian Grenier, star of HBO’s Entourage, leads a talented team through a variety of green building and community projects. Alter Eco’s cast of green experts—builder Darren Moore, stylist and supermodel Angela Lindvall and activist Boise Thomas—lend the style and smarts to make sustainability sexy. Alter Eco’s emphasis on local economies, organic food and green living makes for conscientious entertainment. Watch it on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST.

Do you think we’re on the way to making environmentalism mainstream? 

Adrian Grenier: Unfortunately, I don’t think that being green is mainstream yet. My hope is that, through the efforts of myself and others in this business, the choices we make today will have serious effects on future generations. It’s really up to us to remain committed to the cause so it won’t be considered a trend.

Why is green building important, and how has it changed?

Darren Moore: We build in a fashion that’s recyclable or reusable for homeowners. A green home utilizes less resources and gives people a comfortable, energy-efficient home; a more durable home thanks to better craftsmanship and more thoughtful design; and better air quality because the products we use aren’t outgasing toxins in the house.

How can we continue to bring the message to the masses?
