'Down to Earth with Zac Efron': Journey across the globe for sustainable living solutions with the adventurer
Netflix's new offering 'Down to Earth with Zac Efron' releases on Friday, July 10. The docu-series features actor and environmental activist Zac Efron visiting various parts of the globe in search of ways to sustainably consume food, water and energy which are the main staples essential for all life on the planet.
Efron is accompanied by Darin Olien on this journey who's identified as a "superfood hunter" according to his website. Both of them travel to France, Puerto Rico, London, Iceland, Costa Rica, Peru and Sardinia among other countries to learn about sustainable measures that different cultures follow. There is a 90-second trailer that has released for the show giving a peek into the journey of these two men who are traveling the world to find "new solutions to some very old problems".
Efron and Olien meet some top eco-innovators from these countries to themselves learn and educate viewers at the same time about how change is an inside job. "Governments sometimes fail but people always find a way to help each other," says a climate activist in the trailer to Efron and Olien. As seen in the trailer, both of them are seen putting their muscle where their mouth is and helping rebuild the entire community.
Efron is also seen indulging in a lot of adventurous food including one that involves the dish being smoked with dung. The series will highlight how people need to embrace a change in lifestyle and rethink the consumption of everything including food and power. Efron is also seen participating in an aura cleansing routine and looks smoldering while doing so.
Being a part of an environment-themed documentary must have been easy for Efron given his love for off-the-grid activities. In a YouTube video featuring him last year titled, "Off the Grid With Zac Efron", he was heard saying, "Getting out and experiencing the wild, stepping out of your comfort zone. It’s cool, it helps you grow as a person." Efron is highly passionate about seeking solutions for problems that plague our environment.
According to LiveKindly, on April 22, which is also commemorated as Earth Day, Efron hosted Discovery Channel’s 'Great Global Cleanup'. The show put the spotlight on young climate activists and their ways of helping the planet. He'd also put up a post on his Instagram page on Earth Day with the caption, "I have always been in awe of the magic and mystery of Mother Nature.
