What would you do if your energy and water supplies were turned off at the mains? How would you survive if your bins were locked, your vehicles clamped and, without warning, your family was forced to live for 24hours in an "eco shutdown"? On Eco House Challenge two suburban, Australian families are about to find out what it takes to help save the planet.

Over several weeks, while still living their normal lives, the families must radically reduce consumption in four eco hot-spots, Energy, Water, Transport and Waste - or face the consequences we all face.

The challenge starts with a bang. No energy, no water, no vehicles and no waste removal. After twenty-four hours one eco hotspot will be returned and a consumption level will be set based on what scientists say will help save the planet. Once that level is maintained another hotspot will be returned. The families will not get their lives back until they drastically reduce their consumption, have all the hotspots balanced and learn to live sustainably.

I have had to watch this for school georgraphy and environmental issues, and I acctually quite enjoyed it. After finnishng the series in class I asked my mum to get it for the family and now we are living similar to the sheppards and edwards too! Not only have we become an eco friendly household , but we have also saved a lot of money on cutting down our bills! :-}
