Planet Green will be coming to a boob tube near you starting at 6 p.m. this evening, and to tonight's Washington Nationals game (weather permitting). The new cable network, which replaces Discovery Home, dubs itself "the first and only 24-hour eco-lifestyle television network."

According to the Associated Press, Planet Green will "soft-sell its mission, making entertainment a bigger priority than education," and will feature "celebrities such as Tommy Lee, Ludacris, Tom Bergeron and Adam Grenier -- and absolutely no lectures, promises Eileen O'Neill, the network's president."
To mark the network's launch, Nats players and ushers will be wearing special green caps at tonight's Nationals-Cardinals game at Nationals Park (see our NatCast, by the way), and 5,000 fans will get a free metro ride home. Planet Green promotions are also taking place today at ballparks in Milwaukee, Oakland, San Diego and San Francisco.
