NO IMPACT MAN is a documentary about a family in Manhattan who decide to alter their lifestyle completely, so that they made no impact on their environment for a whole year. It has been passed at '15' for strong language.

The film is thoroughly benign and sincere in tone, and contains no issues of any type, apart from seven uses of 'f*****g' and one of 'motherf*****', as the couple are interviewed about their and other people's reactions to their new, very limited lifestyle. The BBFC Guidelines at '12A' state that 'Moderate language is allowed. The use of strong language (for example, ‘fuck’) must be infrequent' and eight uses of strong language in total is therefore not permissible below '15'.

The documentary also includes brief natural nudity as a toddler changes for bed, and a passing and undetailed mention of a woman's miscarriage.
