No Impact Man
Can you save the world without driving your family crazy?
Official film description
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.

While there were a few moments that wafted of sentimentality (there were two uproarious games of charades), the bulk of the movie presented an interesting commentary about the challenges of transitioning to a lifestyle that is consistent with your ecological values. – TreeHugger
