Win a copy of the EPIC movie and Learn How To Be Green at Home

Epic will be on blu-ray and DVD on August 20th. There is lots to learn from this movie for both children and adults. These five simple steps inspired by the movie will help us toward becoming "epically green" in our homes.

1. Unplug appliances, chargers and turn off any lights that aren’t in use. Make the most of natural light during the day by letting the sunshine in through windows. At night, be sure to turn the computer all the way off instead of simply logging out. By taking a few extra minutes a day, we can help save our outdoor friends like Mub and Grub.
2. The Leafmen travel by hummingbird, producing no environmentally harmful waste. It may be pretty impossible for people our size to get from place to place on a bird, but there are other ways to be green such as sharing a ride with friends or family will significantly decrease the pollution in our air.
3. The Leafmen use their surroundings to create stylish armor. Although we may not realize it, even clothing can have an impact on the environment. Washing clothes uses tons of water and energy. Try to put off this chore as long as possible and only do laundry on cold cycles and when you have large loads. Take good care of clothes so that you don’t have to buy new ones as often.
4. You can create your own personal, beautiful Moonhaven right outside the back door by creating a garden full of flowers, herbs, vegetables and fruits. This will have a fantastic impact on our backyard as well as the rest of the world. Buying local instead of buying goods that have been transported long distances will help us reduce harmful toxins in our atmosphere.
