A Year of Living Sustainably

Colin Beavan and his family tried for a year to have no environmental impact on the world. He talks about his new book, No Impact Man: The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet, and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009), and the about documentary on his experiment in sustainable living that opens Friday at the Angelika Film Center in Manhattan.
