D.Blawg says: I recently saw a special screening of “No Impact Man,” hosted by Global Inheritance at Environmentland in Hollywood including a Q&A afterwards with the no impact man himself! 

My thoughts? Its a great documentary – entertaining, family fun, clever, but most importantly, it’ll make you think about the lifestyle you lead and the changes that you have room to make. “No Impact Man” takes us where “the Inconvenient Truth” and “the 11th Hour” left off by offering REAL LIFE ideas, solutions and suggestions for ways that we can reduce, reuse and recycle the number of things we have in our lives that create waste and harm the planet.

No Impact Man is not so full of himself to say that he has all of the answers and that we should all do what he did. In fact, he specifically says “not everyone can or should do what I did,” BUT he does offer up his experiences as an example…

Towards the end of the documentary No Impact Man, Colin Beaven says if there is only ONE thing that you can and/or want do in your life for the environment, make it a couple of hours of volunteer work for a local environmental organization.
