We've been busy! And we haven't had time to put together our usual year end wrap up ... This is a good thing. In the meantime, we've come to admire the tireless work of Mr. Colin Beavan, aka No Impact Man, self described as follows:
A Guilty Liberal Finally Snaps, Swears Off Plastic, Goes Organic, Becomes a Bicycle Nut, Turns Off His Power, Composts His Poop and, While Living In New York City, Generally Turns Into a Tree Hugging Lunatic Who Tries to Save the Polar Bears and the Rest of the Planet from Environmental Catastrophe While Dragging His Baby Daughter and Prada-Wearing, Four Seasons-Loving Wife Along for the Ride.
The Good News
Colin writes really well, he and his family are having quite a bit of success in their pursuit of a year-without-impacts -- and the blog rocks, exploring dozens of difficult subjects on a monthly basis. His work typifies the fact that the green revolution is very much fueled by the power of the internet; the power to self-educate and communicate rapidly ... the idea that each of us makes the difference, as individuals sharing the same great world... Colin's work gets two thumbs up, and not just from us. Check out the link below for his upcoming movie, "NO IMPACT MAN," and visit the blog -- a great way to learn.
Switch to Clean Electricity
You probably know this, but -- getting off of fossil fuel-fired
electricity is literally the best thing you can do for your health and the
environment. The link below will take you to nation-wide clean energy options.
