The documentary of Colin Beavan's year-long experiment to lessen his carbon footprint on the planet was a 2009 selection at the Sundance Film Festival. Beavan, along with his wife, young daughter and dog, committed to 12 months of New York City hi-rise living minus elevators, motorized transportation, electricity, toilet paper, and take-out. Family relationships and dynamics were changed in a way Beavan never anticipated. The experience was life-changing for all involved. Even Michelle, Colin's fashionista wife, joined the side of sustainability.
