Wasted - Format

30 min eps

Save the planet and some cash!

Wa$ted is the show that proves you don't have to be extreme to be green. The Wa$ted team takes your average household of eco horrors and turns it into a green haven, saving serious cash in the process. We do this by working out the household's carbon or eco footprint using the Wa$ted teams own unique proprietary EcoCalculator. The footprint of most households is considerably larger than it should be - meaning that they are using more of the planet's resources than can be sustained.

The fun starts when we expose what people are wasting and our Eco-experts start working with them on the changes they need to make to get that footprint under control! Everyone can make a contribution to saving the planet - from three gorgeous girls living in the ultimate party pad to families with six children - theses days we are all keen to go green.

Wa$ted offers a cash prize too, and shows that being eco-friendly not only saves your planet, it saves your cash too! Want to calculate your waste? Go to
