No Impact Man

This film follows a family living in New York City as they take on a year long project to reduce their negative impact on the earth. Some of the changes they make include shopping locally, biking/walking instead of motor transit, composting, reducing the use of disposable containers, and finally, living without electricity for 6 months. They take their experiment to the extreme as a way to help them break from the normal dependencies on everyday conveniences and ultimately learn what they can and can’t live without. The take home message here is a valuable one – if we all look for areas where we can make small improvements, such as shopping locally or using reusable bags and cups, together we can make a significant impact!
