A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no longer avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin leaves behind his liberal complacency for a vow to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year. No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food, no more material consumption no problem. That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. Laura Gabbert and Justin Scheins film provides a front row seat into the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colins and Michelles struggle with this radical lifestyle change.<br /> <br /> Starring: Colin Beavan, Michelle Conlin Eco-Vegan Gal Tunes-Up at Bikerowave tag:www.openmarvista.net,2009-10-22:1973667:Video:12395 2009-10-22T06:07:54.334Z James Brennan http://www.openmarvista.net/profile/JamesBrennan <a href="http://www.openmarvista.net/video/ecovegan-gal-tunesup-at"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/327505134?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Whitney tunes-up her bike at Mar Vista's Bikerowave, a community bike shop that "provides space, tools and equipment in order to effectively teach people how to build, repair, and maintain their bicycles".… <a href="http://www.openmarvista.net/video/ecovegan-gal-tunesup-at"><br /> <img src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/327505134?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Whitney tunes-up her bike at Mar Vista's Bikerowave, a community bike shop that "provides space, tools and equipment in order to effectively teach people how to build, repair, and maintain their bicycles". <a href="http://www.bikerowave.org">www.bikerowave.org</a> Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase tag:www.openmarvista.net,2009-09-25:1973667:Video:12230 2009-09-25T22:52:15.574Z James Brennan http://www.openmarvista.net/profile/JamesBrennan <a href="http://www.openmarvista.net/video/mar-vista-green-garden"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/327504765?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The Mar Vista Community Council's Green Committee invites fellow Los Angeles area residents to see what their water-savvy neighbors in Mar Vista are doing to help combat the Southland's water crisis.

In an effort to help Mar Vista become a model community for reduced water consumption, we seek to encourage others in the community to be inspired by and to adopt the water-saving solutions already in use by green trend-setters. Tours through dozens of Mar Vista gardens also offer the benefit of first-hand experience and the expertise of those already committed to reducing their water consumption profiles through the adoption of drought-resistant landscaping.
