Colin Beavan – No Impact Man-Family – von den Zinsen des Planeten zu leben statt von seinem Kapital

I wanted to find a way to live of the interest-rate of the planet and not of it’s capital“

„Ich wollte einen Weg finden, von den Zinsen des Planeten zu leben statt von seinem Kapital.“

maybe he should have called it „no impact family“ 😀 his wife HATES it 😀

Author Colin Beavan, in research for his next book, began the No Impact Project in November 2006. A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no long avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin left behind his liberal complacency for a vow to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year. No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food, no more material consumption… no problem. That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein’s Sundance-selected film provides a front row seat into the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colin’s and Michelle’s struggle with this radical lifestyle change.
