Bewildering predictions about our planet’s future? What to do? Film producer Mark Dixon packs his camera and two friends into a car. Their goal: “50 States. One Year. Zero Garbage.” Called to action by a planet in crisis, the three friends hit the road with hope, humor–and all of their trash–to explore America, the good, bad, and weird, in search of innovators tackling humanity’s greatest environmental challenges in this award-winning docu-comedy.
YERT has won six Best Documentary awards and been honored as an Official Selection for 26 film festivals throughout the country. Author Jeff Biggers says in Huffington Post, “The Fellini trio of the climate justice movement, the YERT film crew has managed to pull off the impossible in the world of cinema–a deeply absorbing and often hilarious road trip that confronts the badlands of our nation’s spiraling descent into dirty energy darkness, only to emerge along the solar roadways and wind-swept plains into the myriad possibilities for new power and sustainable living. By the dramatic end of Your Environmental Road Trip, audiences will not only cheer, but feel compelled to spring to their feet to join an inspiring movement for change. If only our nation’s policymakers will watch this important film and do the same.”
