No Impact Man



A New York family decides to reduce their environmental impact to zero during a whole year.


Colin Beavan is a New York writer who announces that in order to write his next book he will become "the man without (ecological) impact", and thus confirm whether a zero ecological footprint affects happiness in a negative way. Beavan will continue living in the city and will involve his wife and daughter in the experiment: a year without electricity, without a car, without heating... Is it necessary a drastic change of habits in order to lead a sustainable life?
