The No Impact Experiment

As I have alluded to in previous blog entries, I realize that I am certainly not the first (nor hopefully the last) to commit to a challenge such as this one.  I did a bit of 'surfing' today and stumbled upon some really cool and inspiring stuff out there.  One of my favorites, was the 'No Impact Man' blog.  A few years ago, No Impact Man, AKA Colin Beavan and his family committed to living off the grid in New York city afor one full year.  Colin's project has grown exponentially since then and he now has a huge following, as well as both a book and a movie deal (!)  Colin has an 'experiment' for his readers to try out, so, given that it is very fitting with what I am trying to do, I thought that I would sign up for his challenge, as well as challenge YOU (yes, you) to do this one week challenge with me as well. The date for the challenge this spring hasn't been set yet, so you still have time.  The site also has lots of information if you have any questions about it.  If you decide to join, let me know and I think it would super rad to post all of our experiences on this blog as well. Go to the No Impact Project site and sign up under 'experiment' today!

On a related topic, while I was digging around on Colin's site, I was also reminded of this little video: The Story of Stuff.  It is absolutely AMAZING!  If you haven't seen it yet, watch it today.  Her other videos are well worth watching too!

So, today's theme is: GET INVOLVED (aka 'everybody's doing it') - even if it's just for a week.  If you do decide to join in the fun, I want to hear about it!

The gauntlet has been laid...
