IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN

Filmed in a scenic English countryside, IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN follows the successes, trials and tribulations of a middle class family who try to renovate a cheap, but rundown farmhouse on a few acres of land.

Full of humanity and real world challenges, dive into what it takes for one family to be green.

If you are looking for inspiration in your own lifestyle, you love home improvement or you just want to see environmentalism in practice, then IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN is the perfect show to watch. Make sure to catch the premiere episode on Tuesday, July 17th.
