Inspiring Film: YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip) at Washington Twp Library

50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage? 


YERT – Your Environmental Road Trip--follows three friends as they hit the road - traveling America with hope, humor and all of their garbage - to explore the good, the bad, and the weird across every state in search of the extraordinary innovators and courageous citizens who are tackling humanity's greatest environmental crises. The catch: The team turned the camera on their own lifestyle and set their own road rules, vowing to create less than one shoebox of garbage each month, including recyclables, never turning on an incandescent light (except car lights), or using approximately 25 gallons of water per person per day.

As the YERT team layers outlandish eco-challenges onto their year-long quest, an unexpected turn of events throws the project for a loop in this award-winning docu-comedy. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, and David Orr.  See the trailer at http://www.yert.com/
