The New York Times reports that Discovery Communications, which operates the Discovery Channel and various spinoffs, will re-brand Discovery Home as a yet-to-be-named green channel. The channel will promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle and will be available in 50 million homes in the U.S. The move is part of a larger initiative at the company, which includes carbon-neutralizing its headquarters. No word yet on a launch date or programming.

Implications - Considering the impending and already-unfolding environmental disasters around the world, eco-conscious consumers look toward suppliers for assurance that their purchase hasn't contributed to any environmental harm. Companies capable of providing that assurance, in the form of green products or a carbon-neutral headquarters, will ultimately attract a larger swathe of the population.
