Green T and Big MaMa Earth interviewed hundreds of children and their families at the event and empowered them to recycle, reduce, reuse and support animal rights and rain forest and ocean protection. Big MaMa Earth also asked kids and their families to support the earthquake and tsunami survivors in Japan. We are all connected to everyone and everything on this Planet. If we all do a little we can accomplish a lot.
Leading environmental and community organizations today applauded Big MaMa Earth Entertainment’s decision to become an “e-Stewards Enterprise.“ In doing so, Big MaMa Earth Entertainment commits to pursuing the most responsible recycling practices for its electronic waste, or e-waste by using e-Stewards Certified Recyclers.
In today’s economy, will families donate $1 or more to save the planet? Mike Miller, co-founder of Big MaMa Earth Entertainment, is counting on it. Miller, known as Grandpa Mikey to his grandkids, is a TV infomercial producer, a past executive search consultant and has been an environmentalist his entire life.
“Our environment is in peril — approaching a tipping point,” and “our children, being the future of our planet, can show us the way.” To encourage everyone to take action, Miller and his team are developing the first Eco-Kids TV Show called, “Big MaMa Earth & ME.”
The TV show will engage, inspire, and empower children, teachers, and families to take action. It will teach them about environmental solutions they can implement in their homes, schools, and communities. The show will be a blend of a green Hannah Montana, Wild Kingdom, and Sesame Street.
In these tough economic times, will families donate a $1 or more to save the planet? Canyon Lake resident Mike Miller, co-founder of Big MaMa Earth Entertainment, is counting on it. “Our environment is in peril, at a tipping point,” Miller said. “Our children are the future of our planet, to show us the way.”
The Big MaMa Earth’s “Learning Experience” Co-hosted the New World F.E.S.T on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 7-9 on the beaches of Santa Monica, with many other performers and speakers on its stage. Big MaMa Earth is a fun, live, walk around-Character, a Green Eco friendly movement, an inspiring new outlook on life, and a worldwide web portal for the next generation.

Is the Earth Day spirit still alive? In today’s economy, will families donate $1 or more to save the Planet? Mike Miller, co-founder of Big MaMa Earth Entertainment, is counting on it. Miller, known as Grandpa Mikey to his grand kids, is a TV infomercial producer, a past business consultant, and a devoted environmentalist his entire life. “Our environment is in peril – approaching a tipping point”, and, “our children, being the future of our planet, can show us the way”. To encourage everyone to take action, Miller and his team are developing the first Eco-Kids TV Show called, “Big MaMa Earth & ME”.
Listen up! Eco-music is everywhere. Singers like Miley Cyrus are using their talents to communicate a “green” message. Talented teens are writing their own green lyrics and putting them to songs by artists like Kanye West. Very young students are learning by singing fun songs about the importance of caring for the planet. Here at Earth Preservers we’ve got a green play list that just keeps growing and growing and growing.
Mike Miller made a fortune in the infomercial business but now Miller has a new pitch: saving the Earth’s environment one child, one skit, one recycled bottle, one energy-efficient light bulb at a time. He said ocean reefs, which provide some of the Earth’s oxygen, are in particular peril because of pollution. “We really have an acute love for nature and wildlife protection. And I’ve used that through everything that we’ve done,” Miller said.
