No Impact Man is about as good as an Earth Day film could be. Very well crafted and inspiring- this is a film you should watch with your kids to impress upon them the importance of our loving our planet to the fullest.
Environmentalist Colin Beavan and his wife try to make as small a carbon footprint as possible for one year.
Author Colin Beavan, in research for his new book, began the No Impact Project in November 2006. A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no longer avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin leaves behind his liberal complacency for a vow to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year. No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food, no more material consumption no problem. That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein s film provides a front row seat into the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colin s and Michelle s struggle with this radical lifestyle change.
