Montclair Environmental Movie Night: No Impact Man

The Montclair Township Environmental Affairs office and Community Green present another eye opening films about what we can do for the future of our environment.
No Impact Man gives us an entertaining vision of a family that tries to eliminate all the over use of energy in their lives. Join us as we participate in
New American Dream's nationwide pre-DVD release community screenings of the documentary, No Impact Man, and a post-screening discussion about how to simplify our holidays this year. During the two-weeks of the historic UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (December 7th-18th), they’re bringing people together to talk about the impact of holiday spending on their lives and the environment. To learn more visit: "
No Impact Project" In the film, Colin Beavan decides to completely eliminate his personal impact on the environment for the next year. It means eating vegetarian, buying only local food, and turning off the refrigerator. It also means no elevators, no television, no cars, buses, or airplanes, no toxic cleaning products, no electricity, no material consumption, and no garbage. No problem – at least for Colin – but he and his family live in Manhattan. So when his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray, the No Impact Project has an unforeseen impact of its own. This is one of a series of Environmental Film Screenings put on by For more information contact Marnie Vyff at[masked] or [masked].

    No Impact Man was Gray Russell's favorite movie that we have shown and we had the largest turnout yet at 54+ viewers. It was an inspiring/realistic film that some how made it more inspiring. The talk afterward lasted longer than usual too. All together, a tremendous success!
