No Impact Man
It’s an interesting documentary about a guy and his family who attempt a year-long experiment in which they have no impact (i.e. no carbon footprint) on the environment. It’s actually pretty funny — I could totally see myself in the wife — as well as being an educational look at what we can easily do without versus what we can’t. While I do think that he was doing this little task more for publicity for his book, I also think that he and his family learned a lot while participating in the project. There are some interesting ideas, some successful and some not. I am even kind of inspired to attempt to stop using paper towels and paper napkins… however, I am still refusing to give up toilet paper… But if you need something both entertaining and enlightening to add to your queue, this would be a great addition!
