No Impact Week Starts Sunday, October 18
October 18,2009 launches No Impact Week! Join Colin Beavan, also known as No Impact Man, and others who will be living the simple life starting this Sunday. What's No Impact Week all about? Colin says,
"The No Impact Experiment is a one-week carbon cleanse. It is a chance for you to see what a difference no-impact living can have on your quality of life. It’s not about giving up creature comforts but an opportunity for you to test whether the modern "conveniences" you take for granted are actually making you happier or just eating away at your time and money."
RPN manager, Vincent Kitira had the pleasure of cycling next to No Impact Man in Climate Ride 2009. Check out Vincent's blog on his 5 day, 300 miles cycling adventure from New York City to Washington, D.C. to support climate change awareness.
Even Stephen Colbert has taken some interest into the no impact lifestyle, which can be seen through his interview with No Impact Man.
