Documentary: "No Impact Man"

Wednesday, April 21 2010 at 7:00 PM


“No Impact Man”, a documentary about one man’s decision to eliminate his family’s environmental impact for one year, will show at the Borah Theater in the Student Union Building at 7 p.m.

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, retail-worshiping wife Michelle, and their young toddler, enter the fray.

This event is sponsored by the Associated Students of the University of Idaho and the University of Idaho Sustainability Center.
