I read a book last year called No Impact Man. It is about a New York based journalist who decides to go on a mission to lessen his impact on the environment…
The book charts his and his family's journey through deciding not to throw anything away, stop using plastic, stop using cars and taxis, eating foods that do not come in packaging and lots more including stopping using electricity! Just think of that list and see how you think you could do by cutting out the first few things on the list.
It was one of the things that inspired me to join up to 10:10 at Adessi and it is well worth a read. For those of you who would rather, you can read the blog and now a film has been released which is also very good. It is a very direct approach and shows what can be achieved if you really want to make a difference. It is pretty extreme and goes way beyond what most people will be willing to do, but it is inspirational and very informative.
I think you should watch it… Let me know what you think
