No Impact Man (2009) Trailer
Colin Beavan, author, and newly self-proclaimed environmentalist, decides to leave behind a life of liberal complacency for a vow to make zero environmental impact 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, Prada-worshipping wife Michelle, and their young toddler, enter the fray. "No Impact Man" is an insightful and funny look at how one family deals with turning their lives upside down in the name of the planet. Gabbert and Schein's film provides a front row seat into the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from this radical lifestyle change.
