Moss Envy is excited to host the Twin Cities' premier of the award winning feature length film: YERT - The Movie! YERT
, which stands for "Your Environmental Road Trip," (http://www.yert.com
) is a one year 50-state video documentary road trip to explore and personalize sustainability across the country. All throughout the journey, Mark Dixon, Ben Evans, and Julie Evans released fast-paced videos online to share their adventures, including their very own "road rules" eco-challenges (like keeping all of their garbage in the car all year), visits to environmentally significant destinations, and most importantly, interviews with over 800 leaders, businesspeople, researchers, and average citizens from all walks of life. Their videos have exceeded over one million views and their work has been featured on The Huffington Post, Treehugger.com, the Weather Channel, Voice of America, the San Francisco Chronicle, and on NPR stations nationwide via the environmental news program, "Living on Earth."
Join Mark Dixon from YERT and Ryan and Tina North (owners of Moss Envy)

Ever try cutting down your garbage to 1/100th of its normal size? On the road? With a pregnant woman? Come on by to find out how they did just that and more!
