FILM: No Impact Man

at The Guild Cinema

The Guild Cinema and 516 ARTS presented a special screening of No Impact Man.  What does it really take to live eco-effectively?  For one year, Colin Beavan swore off plastic and toxins, turned off his electricity, went organic, became a bicycle nut, and tried to save the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his young daughter and his Prada-wearing wife along for the ride.  Together they attempted to make zero impact on the environment while living right in the heart of Manhattan, and this is the sensational, funny, and consciousness-raising story of how they did it.  With No Impact Man, Beavan found that no-impact living is worthwhile - and richer, fuller, and more satisfying in the bargain.

The No Impact Project is an international, environmental, nonprofit project, founded in the spring of 2009.  It was inspired by the No Impact Man book, film and blog.  The action to engage new people in the quest for ways of living that connect individual happiness with service to community and habitat.
