No Impact Man

We recently saw the No Impact Man movie on Netflix which was interesting as I have read the book as well as participated in the No Impact week project.

The movie is a good watch if you want to get an insight to what the No Impact Man project was all about for Colin Beavan and his family. However, if you are more interested in the project I recommend you read the book, the movie is fun if you already have read the book but if you have not I think it can leave you wondering a bit over his choices and his reasoning. The movie is a good addition to the book though and it was fun to see some of the things "live" that I had read about in the book.

If you want to try to do a lighter version of the No Impact Project you can participate through the No Impact Project's webpage

A Year Without New Clothes

I was invited on Facebook to the event A Year Without New Clothes and after once again cleaning out my closet today and realizing that we just don't have the space for all our clothes I thought, why not? I already don't buy a lot of new clothes ( I do get some from friends and family as well as buy second hand though) but since I rarely throw anything away the clothes just seem to add up.

So now, until September 2015 I will only be allowed to buy shoes and underwear if needed. Clothes I will have to do with what I have.

I'll keep you updated!
