Documentary Screening

FLC PISO
December 10, 2009

Go green this holiday season

Go green this holiday season

On December 10th and 11th, as the holiday season approaches and the UN Climate Change Conference takes place in Copenhagen, the Folsom community is invited for a pre-DVD release screening of the No Impact Man documentary and a discussion about not-shopping. The Folsom Lake College screening is one of dozens taking place across the nation this week.

The No Impact Man FREE Holiday Screening will take place at two locations:
- Thursday, 12/10 at the El Dorado Center, Community Room (C-102), in Placerville, beginning at 6pm
- Friday, 12/11 at the Folsom campus, Large Lecture Hall (Buckeye Hall room FL3-173), in Folsom, beginning at 6pm and a recently added showing at 8pm

After each screening, there will be a discussion about how we can reduce our consumption, spend less, put the fun back into the holiday season and get more of what matters out of it. Event-goers will also receive an e-toolkit full of tips for lowering their environmental impact during the holidays.

No Impact Man, an Oscilloscope film, tells the story of Colin Beavan’s decision to completely eliminate his personal impact on the environment for a full year. It means eating vegetarian, buying only local food, and turning off the refrigerator. It also means no elevators, no television, no cars, busses, or airplanes, no toxic cleaning products, no electricity, no material consumption, and no garbage. No problem – at least for Colin – but he and his family live in Manhattan. So when his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray, the No Impact Project has an unforeseen impact of its own. The national screenings are facilitated by the No Impact Project, an organization founded by Colin Beavan following his no impact year, and the Center For a New American Dream, an organization that helps Americans consume more responsibly. This event is FREE and open to the public. Please go to: http://bit.ly/3WDmB1 to RSVP.
