EcoSense for Living Episode 3 - Green Jobs

Episode Description: The Big (Green) - Easy In post-Katrina New Orleans, the LAGC becomes a shining example to the rest of the country and shows us the real-life results of green job training. At-risk young people get hands-on training on how to fortify and weatherize homes and buildings, then spread their new green skills throughout The Big Easy.

New Life for Old Bottles - When a Fortune 100 company goes green, the results can be felt around the world. We take you to Spartanburg, S.C., to witness a unique recycling process – one that makes new bottles directly from old bottles without using raw materials. At 6 billion bottles and counting, the Coca-Cola Company has forged a partnership that’s created the largest recycling center of its kind in the world – and created jobs that didn’t exist before.

There’s Green in my Pizza! – Would you eat a green pizza? Pizza Fusion shows us how any job can become a green job with the right attitude and practices. Everything from their delivery vehicles to their ingredients are absolutely earth-friendly! Behind the scenes at Destiny Organics, farmers, warehouse workers, and management have the green jobs that put the red sauce on the “green” pizza! Back to EcoSense homepage.
