Star Channel will air an original special program to mark the 40th anniversary of "Earth Day" on April 22. Actress Ikue Masudo, 46, will be the navigator for the show and talk about her environment activities and experiences from attending the Earth Day 2008 event in Japan.
Star Channel, in collaboration with the History Channel and Tohokushinsha Film Corporation will broadcast the program "Earth Day 2010" on April 22 free to air from 8:45 p.m.-9 p.m.
Other eco-programs planned for April include “Earth” on THE CINEMA, “The 11th Hour” on Star Channel and programs on three other themes such as “Getting to Know the Earth,” “The Environment” and “Managing the Environment” on HISTORY CHANNEL.
Masudo said she tries to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. She said she eats at home 70-80% of the time, using ingredients she made or grown herself.
“I think the most important thing is we should get to know the truth about the state of the Earth's environment and then think about what we can do about it," Masudo said.
