Nat Geo to air Earth Day special

National Geographic Channel has announced the launch of the eco-themed Garbage Moguls special, set to premiere on Earth Day. The special will follow the team behind 'eco-capitalists' TerraCycle through the process of taking waste, adding design and producing mass merchandise - in this case a messenger bag for OfficeMax, made from old billboard materials and seat belts and a kite made entirely of Oreo wrappers for Wal-Mart.
