No Impact Man Film Showing – Thur July 7

 

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 9.18.27 AM

Join the Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG) and G.A.L.A. for an outdoor movie night screening of No Impact Man, on July, 7/7 at the GMCG Office (196 Huntress Bridge Road, Effingham, NH) at 7pm.

This tree-hugging, polar bear saving, bicycle composting film is about how one man dragged his family to live a life of zero impact. “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 wife along for the ride.” This is a sensational, funny, and consciousness-raising story of how they managed this in the middle of Manhattan.

If interested, here is a link to the No Impact Man website where you can read more about the project and movie trailer.

After the showing, Aislinn Pluta from Global Awareness Local Action(GALA) will be leading a discussion about how someone can live a less impactful life like the one Colin did. She also will be discussing Colin’s new book coming out, “How To Be Alive”. Starting just after 7pm there will be s’mores, popcorn, and a fire to enjoy before, during, and after the movie, offering a great opportunity to keep the discussion going.
GMCG’s summer series, there will also include a hike up Mt. Katherine on 7/25, “Gas Land” screening on 8/4 at 7pm, a hike with Madison Conservation Commission on 8/9, and on 9/10 a hike up Green Mountain. To learn more about their great events, click here.
