The Earth Day Special

April 22, 1990 | ABC Television | 90 minutes
Directed by: Dwight Hemion
Celebrities of television and film gathered to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Earth Day. The show provides ways in which everyone can participate in saving the planet. There are ways we can do this everyday with the choices we make. The casts of beloved tv shows entertain and teaches through comedy, singing, and storytelling, while movie stars slip into characters in short stories to give environmental advice. In a rather strange segment, Meryl Streep "plays" a concerned citizen who meets a bartender, played by Kevin Costner - and they talk about recycling (!)
