HGTV'S "RED HOT & GREEN" SHOWS HOW TO HELP SAVE THE PLANET WITHOUT SACRIFICING STYLE

New Weekly Series Premieres Wednesday, July 2 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV

Knoxville, Tenn. [July 1, 2008] - Lifestyle choices that are friendly to the planet and easy on the wallet are two trends that are certainly welcome by today's homeowners. But the panoply of eco-friendly d�cor and energy saving appliances now available can be overwhelming to many, and tackling such projects can seem a bit daunting. Luckily, lifestyle expert and craftsman Carter Oosterhouse (Carter Can, HGTV Green Home 2008) and interior designer Nicole Facciuto are on hand in the new weekly series, Red Hot & Green, premiering on Wednesday, July 2 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Each episode features Carter and Nicole as they show viewers simple ways to go green, cut energy costs and still achieve a great looking space.

Each week on Red Hot & Green, viewers will learn about the latest in green gear and sustainable design - from wallpaper and coffee tables made of recycled sea grass, bamboo and paper to environmentally-friendly alternatives to common design products and household items. The series also incorporates tips to help every homeowner cut costs through the 3 R's: Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle. Carter and Nicole also will show viewers how to spruce up any living space with both the planet and their budget in mind. In the premiere episode, the duo will tackle an out-of-date kitchen overrun by swimming pool tiles on the floors and walls, and will turn it into a lovely oasis, using eco-friendly cork flooring, faux concrete countertops made from recycled paper, and a stunning stack-stone backsplash.

"Red Hot & Green shows viewers how to make choices that create the perfect home environment while keeping the impact on the actual environment in mind," says Michael Dingley, senior vice president, HGTV programming and content strategy. "The series is another example of HGTV's commitment to presenting viewers with all of the latest innovations, alternatives and solutions to inform their design decisions--especially those takeaway tips that translate into savings without sacrificing style."

In addition, HGTV.com offers great green-themed interactive features related to the series. Online visitors can find online quizzes, slide shows of easy eco-friendly ideas for the home, as well as a link to the Marketplace section of the web site, enabling users to purchase products shown on each episode.
