YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip): 50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage?

It's taken more than 150 years to get ourselves into this mess, with America leading the way. The science tells us we have 5-10 years to get ourselves out of it. The question is, will America be leading the way or...are we doomed?

Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road - traveling with hope, humor, and all of their garbage - to explore every state in America (the good, the bad...and the weird) in search of the extraordinary innovators and citizens who are tackling humanity's greatest environmental crises. As the YERT team layers outlandish eco-challenges onto their year-long quest, an unexpected turn of events pushes them to the brink in this award-winning docu-comedy.

Featuring:
Bill McKibben

I have seen and read about some of the doers and activists that participated in this film, but I had no idea there were so many people in the U.S. who really care and are coming up with some intelligent ideas for change. These 3.5 wonderful people have made me feel so much more positive about our current situation. I wish this easy-to-watch and thoughtful film was required viewing for every college, trade, high, middle, and intermediate school student.

I really enjoyed this movie. It has some interesting ideas in a lighter format. We all need to do our bit and this film inspires us to think outside the box.
