I caught an episode of "Wa$ted" and thought it was pretty good. Though most of the things they had the family in the show doing were pretty basic to me (use cloths instead of paper towels, CFL bulbs, turn the lights off when you leave the room) I'm sure there were lots of viewers who didn't know that (at least, I hope they were viewing...). I also liked how they actually measured the money the family saved and the large reduction in their footprint.

The show on after Wa$ted was something about Hollywood stars being green, so I turned it off at that point. I also peeked ahead in the channel guide and saw there were only about 4 or 5 shows playing over several days, so I hope they get some more programming soon.

- When possible, fold up the tops of your boxes so that each flap is under another flap, instead of using tape to seal them. This is probably better if you're self-moving rather than hiring people.

- Use your clothes, towels, etc. as soft padding for breakable stuff. I think t-shirts and towels work best since they can survive getting a little scrunched.

And, since you are moving within the same city, you don't have to throw out all the half-used salad dressing and stuff in your fridge like you would for moving cross-country! That's green! ;)
