This program explores green cities and towns, where sustainable ideas are part of the architecture of everyday life and large projects, encompassing the whole community, major green technologies, and small, inexpensive products to enhance individual lives in the Third World. Also a look at environmentally friendly products that include packaging made from mushrooms, and “green concrete” made with recycled materials.

This episode (Engineers of the New Millennium) of Sustainable Design for the Future was a great show; I happened to catch the second half of the 6am broadcast which is probably why I haven't heard this series before. I hope WNYC picks up this show more often in the future. BTW, I couldn't get to "Shows -> Specials" (no further expansion) in the WNYC iphone app -- I had to come here to the website for access. thx.
