"Your Environmental Road Trip" Film at GreenStar

It's not often that a documentary film is called "absorbing," "important," and "hilarious," but that's how the Huffington Post described "Your Environmental Road Trip," which will be shown at GreenStar's Space facility on Monday 30 July at 7 p.m.

The screening is sponsored by Ithaca Bioneers. Two of the film's producers will introduce it.
The film chronicles three young friends traveling the country researching community initiatives for sustainable living, including economically.

There is an Ithaca connection, as the filmers visited Ithaca to study Ithaca Hours, the local currency system.

The interviewee from the Hours Board does not strictly remember the experience. There are a lot of journalists coming to Ithaca to study Hours. He does remember the merch bag they gave him with the film's acronym, YERT, on it. In fact he still has it. It's a handy little bag.
