********YERT SCREENING IN WASHINGTON DC********
The award-winning environmental docu-comedy called “YERT – Your Environmental Road Trip” will be screening in Takoma Park/Washington DC, and you’re invited!
“Here’s a trip you’ll wish you’d taken, and you’ll be glad you get to watch!”
-Bill McKibben, Author and Environmentalist

METRO: One block from Takoma Station, RED line. Details below.
Here’s a quick synopsis: 50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage? Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road – traveling America with hope, humor and all of their garbage – to explore the good, the bad, and the weird across every state in search of the extraordinary innovators and courageous 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 throws the project for a loop in this award-winning docu-comedy. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, David Orr, and music by Ben Sollee, Daniel Martin Moore, Mark Geary and more.
