As my boys get older I get more and more excited about all of the activities I can do with them, including watching movies. As a kid I loved rainy days curled up on the couch watching movies with my Mom and I look forward to making those memories with my own boys.
From the creators of Ice Age, the year’s funniest, most exhilarating animated adventure comes home as EPIC debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, and DVD this August 20 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by Chris Wedge (The Ice Age Franchise) and featuring an amazing voice cast including Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Pitbull, and Beyoncé, the blockbuster film comes home just in time to help families become one with nature and end the summer in Epic style.
To celebrate the Epic on Blu ray – releasing August 20th, here are some Ways to be ‘Epically Green’
MK, Nod, Queen Tara, and General Ronin work together to fight against the forces of evil and save the natural world. They want to keep the world beautiful, green, and wild. You can help in their endeavour by following these five simple steps toward becoming epically green.
Bomba has a lot of technology that he uses to discover the world. Although we may not realize it, our appliances suck up energy all day long. By simply unplugging your cell phone charger when it’s not in use, you can save a lot of energy and in turn save the beauty outside your back door.
Turn It Off for Mub and Grub
In addition to unplugging your appliances and chargers, be sure to turn off any lights that aren’t in use. Make the most of natural light during the day by letting the sunshine in through windows. At night, be sure to turn the computer all the way off instead of simply logging out. By taking a few extra minutes a day, we can help save our outdoor friends like Mub and Grub.
The Leafmen travel by hummingbird, producing no environmentally harmful waste. It may be pretty impossible for people our size to get from place to place on a bird, but there are other ways to be green. By simply sharing your ride with friends or family, you can significantly decrease the pollution in our air.
Launder Like a Leafman
The Leafmen use their surroundings to create stylish armor. Although we may not realize it, even clothing can have an impact on the environment. Washing clothes uses tons of water and energy! Try to put off this chore as long as possible and only do your laundry on cold cycles and when you have large loads. Take good care of your clothes so that you don’t have to buy new ones as often.
Grow a Garden
You can create your own personal, beautiful Moonhaven right outside the back door. Create a garden full of flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruits. This will have a fantastic impact on your backyard as well as the rest of the natural world. When you aren’t buying goods that have been transported long distances, you are helping to reduce the harmful toxins in our atmosphere.
