NO IMPACT MAN Screening Spreads the No Impact Holiday Message
On Wednesday, December 9th, the Santa Cruz green community will come together to spread the No Impact message with an exclusive pre-screening of the film, NO IMPACT MAN, at the historic Del Mar Theatre in downtown Santa Cruz. The pre-screening is one of many national screenings happening this week in honor of the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Copenhagen.
Hosted by Monterey Bay Green Business member Nubius Organics, and joined by local environmental non-profits Save Our Shores, People Power, Ecology Action and Transition Santa Cruz, the event will bring the No Impact topic home to Santa Cruz by offering community members tips on how to lower your environmental impact during the holidays, as well as ways to get involved at a local level.
Attendees arriving at the NO IMPACT MAN movie on their low impact bicycles will receive complimentary Valet Bike Service provided by Santa Cruz's own People Power!
Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, local eco-celebrity and founder of Ocean Revolution, will lead a community discussion about how to lessen our impact and help curb the devastation happening due to global warming. "The Santa Cruz community works hard to keep our land and waterways healthy. Through efforts such as volunteering for river and coastal clean-ups and voting for local initiatives that reduce or remove impacts before they happen, like the ban on styrofoam containers and the current petition to ban single use bags, stamps Santa Cruz as a leader in the environmental movement," says Wallace J. Nichols.
Tickets to the event are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. The No Impact reception begins at 6:40pm, with the film at 7:15pm, and community discussion at 8:45pm.

No Impact Man is the story of a guilty, New York liberal who decides to practice what he preaches for ONE YEAR (turns off the electricity, stops making garbage, gives up TV, taxis and take out & becomes a walking, bicycling, composting, tree hugging, polar bear saving, local food-eating citizen), all while taking his baby daughter & caffeine loving, retail-obsessed, television-addicted wife along with him.
This is a not for profit event. All extra proceeds will be sent as a donation to the No Impact Project, the non-profit 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.
