Tonight the Girl and I will be watching No Impact Man. A very environmentally conscious friend of mine recommended that I watch it–and I have to admit, I’m intrigued.
The documentary chronicles one Manhattan man’s attempt at having zero net impact on the environment. Colin Beaven, disillusioned with modern day consumption and overwhelmed by his concerns over the environment, decides to take an extreme step towards reducing his carbon footprint. He recruits his reluctant wife, who has a penchant for fashion and city living, and his young daughter to live for one year with greener than green standards. He aims to create zero trash and use zero motorized transportation or electricity–a goal that tests even the strongest environmentalist.
Have you seen it? What did you think?
Have a great weekend.
