As many of you know, Colin and his family took on one bold challenge a few years ago: attempting to live a no-impact lifestyle in the middle of Manhattan. Embedded in so many destructive systems, they had to change their lives dramatically to reduce their ecological footprints.
Their experiment has gone from blog to book, and now to film. Colin's a witty guy, and from the trailer (below), the upcoming documentary looks like a deft blend of personal charm and real, big-picture, difficult questions for those of us living in the world's most wasteful societies to confront -- particularly the vast gap between individual responsibility and systemic change.
You can catch their story, No Impact Man: The Documentary, in theaters September 11.
