Sun & Earth on Sundance Channel Award Winning Eco Series "Big Ideas For A Small Planet"








For Immediate Release

New York, NY – June 21, 2009 – Sundance Channel will premiere season three of the award-winning original eco-series “Big Ideas for a Small Planet” beginning August 4th, 2009 at 8:00pm e/p. The 13-part series airs as part of THE GREEN, Sundance Channel’s weekly primetime destination devoted to environmental programming. The series is produced by Scout Productions.

Big Ideas for a Small Planet, the seminal documentary series on Sundance Channel and one of the first programs developed for THE GREEN, continues to be on the forefront of the discovery and discussion of green design, innovation, and process. Each week, a different green theme comes into focus through the work of three specific forward-thinking innovators -- from scientists to product and fashion designers; from entrepreneurs to first-time inventors -- inspiring audiences to incorporate green thinking and practices into all facets of their daily lives. It asks audiences to imagine a world in which we eat, build, and raise our children green, but this season it expands its scope to address communities, animals, and art, as well as sports, music, and greener ways to relax.

Catch Sun & Earth on Tuesday, September 22 at 8:00 p.m. EDT

Episode 8: Companies. Historically, business has profited by taking from the earth. Can we imagine a world where earth profits from business? Ideas include green-powered paper, eco-food business and green cleaning. Featuring Bill Quigg and David Quigg of Grays Harbor Paper, Joel Makower, Simran Sethi, Josh Dorfman, Michael Gordon and Vaughn Lazar of Pizza Fusion, and John Mullins of Sun & Earth.

Sun & Earth Factory Tours






Sun & Earth is a 20-year old socially and environmentally-responsible natural cleaning products developer, manufacturer, and distributor based in King of Prussia, PA. The company distributes a full-line of natural cleaners through its retail partners (both brick and mortar AND online). Customers who want the convenience of at-home delivery or who are unable to purchase from their favorite, local grocery store are able to buy direct from http://www.sunandearth.com/. Local residents (or those working nearby) are also able to purchase Sun & Earth products directly from the plant.
What: Sun & Earth offers fun-filled, educational, interactive factory tours FREE to the general public and public/private organizations. The one hour visit is full of interesting sights, unique sounds, and helpful infomation.
When: Large and small tour groups are encouraged to schedule their visits by e-mailing info@sunandearth.com. Tours are conducted Monday thru Friday beginning at 10:00 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. Special arrangements/considerations should be communicated in advance in order to accomodate all guests.
Where: Located 20 minutes west of Center City Philadelphia, the King of Prussia, PA plant is conveniently located near the PA Turnpike, Route 476 (Blue Route), Route 202, and Route 76 (Schuylkill Expressway).
How: The site visit consists of four educational, interactive stations. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted by Sun & Earth's President and CEO John Mullins who provides a brief overview of the tour schedule. Next, larger groups are broken into sub-groups (if necessary) in order to maintain a "closeness-feel" during the entire tour.
Station One: Visitors decorate then add soil and seeds to their seed pots while learning about plant life. The emphasis is on the environment and what people are able to do preserve and protect it.

Station Two: Guests decorate their empty 22 oz Sun & Earth All Purpose Cleaner bottles. Children (and adults) are able to create colorful designs on their bottles. At this station, John discusses the natural ingredients (like coconut oil and orange oil) used in Sun & Earth products

Station Three: Attendees are introduced to the process of blending/mixing different ingredients together to obtain the end result...our wonderful natural products.

Station Four: Visiting friends are given the opportunity to observe our manufacturing (filling) process. The beautifully-decorated, empty 22 oz Sun & Earth All Purpose Cleaner bottles are placed on the filling line. Sun & Earth employees operate the line from start to finish. After the bottle is "capped" with a trigger sprayer, the filled container is returned to its proud, new, happy owner.
Why: Continuing our philosophy of full disclosure, Sun & Earth decided to open its doors to just about anyone (we'd probably let our competition enter if they were nice) to learn about the company, environment, and manufacturing processes.
