Columbus to host screening in honor of Earth Day

Press Release

COLUMBUS, GA - Coalition for Sound Growth, Locos Grill & Pub, Trees Columbus and Students for a Sustainable World (CSU) host No Impact Man screening. 

On April 25, during the 40th anniversary week of Earth Day, the Columbus community will be gathering together for a special action-oriented screening of the No Impact Man documentary as well as a discussion about food production and climate change. 

Columbus is one of dozens taking place across the nation.

The No Impact Man Earth Day Screening will take place at Locos Grill & Pub (1358 13th Street) at 2 pm. 

No Impact Man, the Sundance-selected film distributed by Oscilloscope Laboratories, 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/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 family's No Impact Year has an unforeseen impact of its own.

The national screenings are facilitated by the NYC-based No Impact Project, 1Sky,and Slow Food USA.

This event is open to the public and admission is free.

Space is limited and reservations must be made in advance.  Please visit http://noimpactproject.org/news/events/  to RSVP.
