Storyline

Gimme Green is a humorous look at the American obsession with the residential lawn and the effects it has on our environment, our wallets and our outlook on life. From the limitless subdivisions of Florida to sod farms in the arid southwest, Gimme Green peers behind the curtain of the $40-billion industry that fuels our nation's largest irrigated crop-the lawn. Written by E. Flagg

Green isn't always "green"
27 January 2008 | by hrkrixSee all my reviews

Well worth the viewing time, a lighthearted look at an extremely serious issue. By very plainly examining the subject from both sides the filmmakers use interlocking stories to keep the movie from becoming a sermon. Gimme Green points out that turning around our collective viewpoint on the subject will be a task that will go on until drinking water rivals gasoline for price and scarcity. In a dim, very near and foreseeable future, potable water will become more hard to find. Runoff from over fertilized lawns will continue to poison the very few aquifers we have left. No preaching here, just a sad reality coming to a well watered, manicured and green community near you - see sometimes being green isn't always "Green". Nice job by the filmmakers.
