Just received this from the Western Queens Compost Initiative – the film, No Impact Man, is about a year in the life of blogger Colin Bevan, when he decided to live in a way that made no (negative) impact on the environment around him. ┬áCongratulations to the Western Queens Compost Initiative for putting this together – I’ve been intrigued by this film since it came out (actually I read the blog and it was fascinating).

More info below:

Please join us for a screening of No Impact Man this Thursday at 6:30pm, presented by Western Queens Compost Initiative and No Impact Project.

No impact Man is a blog by Colin Beavan (aka No Impact Man) living a green, sustainable, environmental life to help save the planet by reducing pollution. It’s about what each of us can do to end our environmental crisis, make a better place to live for ourselves and everyone else, and hopefully come up with happier way of life along the way.

The movie (based on his blog) documents a year-long project as he went off the grid and attempted to live in the middle of New York City with as little environmental impact as possible, with a caffeine-loving, retail-obsessed, television-loving wife, his two-year-old daughter and his four-year-old dog in tow.

Drink specials will include $4 well drinks (until 7pm), and $6 Mint Juleps & Mojitos (featuring mint from Two Coves Community Garden) all evening.

Event starts at 6:30pm. Screening at 7pm.
Suggested donation – $5 (includes a raffle for a set of seeds from the Hudson Valley Seed Library).

Please RSVP to attend.

No Impact Man at The Sparrow Tavern
24-01 29th Street (corner of 24th Ave & 29th St)
Astoria

Hope to see you there!
