Knowledge is the first step to living greener, and these Samsung Smart TV apps will raise your awareness so that you can get started on a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
Take a crash course in the environmental issues facing us today, or experience the fragile beauty of Planet Earth with critically acclaimed documentaries on the Netflix app. Find award-winning environmental documentaries including Sun Come Up and Gasland on the HBO GO app, along with HBO exclusive content like Mann v. Ford.
Inspired to take action? Start with the Eco Life app, which features easy, interactive tests that calculate your carbon footprint to help you save energy and reduce your impact on the environment.
Commercial farming and transportation of food takes a toll on the environment, so eating locally grown food is a great way to live more green. You can't get any more local than your own backyard, and your Smart TV has apps that can show you how to grow your own produce and drastically reduce the carbon footprint of getting vegetables to your table.
Inspire friends and neighbors to start their own backyard gardens (or just help out with yours!) by inviting them to a casual outdoor party that features fresh ingredients from local farmers' markets. Up your farm-smarts with apps like Home Farming, which teaches simple steps to cultivating your own vegetable patch, from seedling to harvest.
The Herb Garden app will spice up your life with useful tips on starting, maintaining and enjoying your own herb garden, and the Secret Garden app is a handy tool for experienced and newbie gardeners alike, with a recommendation feature that provides suggestions on the best plants for your growing conditions, and a helpful calendar to track watering and plant maintenance schedules.
With their love of animals and the outdoors, kids get naturally enthusiastic about saving the environment. A great Smart TV app to inspire them is Save Our Planet, which takes kids from the Amazon to Africa to learn about endangered species and ecosystems and what they can do to help.
Another kid-friendly app is Armchair Astronaut—explore the solar system in vivid 3D renderings and NASA footage, and see the beauty of Earth from outer space.
