The work to make the nation’s metropolitan regions greener, cleaner, and more energy efficient is too often impeded by the overly earnest language of the movement. Sustainlane.com is trying to break through the wall of techno-legal-political speak with its Unsustainables, an animated series broadcast on the Internet.
According to the Sustainlane.com’s editors, the Unsustainables “depicts the lives of a blended family in a modern urban environment. Each segment centers around our characters who, like many of us, stumble towards the future in an attempt to live green. Sometimes they fail, sometimes they don’t.”
The programming is a useful new venture, especially in visually explaining to kids what’s up with the choices they face.
