WA$TED! proves you don't have to be extreme to be green; taking your average household of eco horrors and turning it into a clean green haven, saving serious cash in the process. Hosts Francesca and Tristan show families their impact on the environment and helps them to become greener in their daily lives.

Returning a year's worth of rubbish, Francesca and Tristan then help the family reduce their environmental impact. Recycling and food scrap systems are implemented and followed by dealing with heating, power consumption, water consumption, and transportation.

WA$TED!'s research team worked with the environmental and scientific community to assess commonly quoted eco information to determine if it was accurate and could be included in the series. The mammoth and dirty task of collecting and auditing each of the WA$TED! families' rubbish led to some unusual discoveries that are exposed throughout the series.
