No Impact Man

In Conservation on March 1, 2010 at 1:29 pm

No Impact Man is a film about Colin Beavan in NYC who over six months phases in a no impact lifestyle and then lives it completely for another six months with his wife and young daughter. He comes across as a man well out on the bell curve and his wife appears as likely to have no impact as an internal combustion engine.

This precarious beginning evolves into a beautiful story about living more fully by consuming less.

Beavan asks, “What if we called it …

The year we didn’t watch tv and we became much better parents as a result

or

The year we ate locally and seasonally and it ended up reversing my wife’s pre-diabetic condition?”
