The series documents Rob Greenfield's off the grid bike ride across America on a bamboo bicycle where he practiced sustainable living to the extreme. In 4,700 miles of cycling he used just 160 gallons of water, burned less than one gallon of gas, never turned on a light switch and created only 2 pounds of trash. That is 80x less water, 200x less trash, 600x less fossil fuels, and 1,000 times less electricity than the average American! Plus he ate nearly 300 pounds of food from grocery store dumpsters to prove just how much perfectly good food is being wasting in the USA.
His actions were extreme but in this series the viewer will learn how your daily actions affect the world around you both near and far. The episodes are food, waste, water, transportation, and energy and each episode informs on the topic in an inspirational and fun way. By the end of the series the viewer will know the basics behind sustainable living and what they can do to live more sustainably without going nearly to the extremes that Rob did on the journey.
