In November 2006, one New York Writer embarked on a year-long project to live with as little impact to the environment as possible. Dragging his shopaholic wife and infant daughterthrough the process, his engaging memoir charts the ups and downs of an unlikely eco-warrior. Hilarious and eye-opening, it poses a challenge to any would-be environmentalist (INSTYLE December 2009)
I even cosidered signing up for the No Impact Project, an experiment designed by Beavan in which participants live for a week the way he and his family did for a yea . . . There was just one crucial detail, for which I needed to scour the NO IMPACT MAN i (WEEKEND AUSTRALIA, December 2009)
In the growing debate over eco-friendly living, it seems that everything is as bad as everything else. Do you do more harm by living in the country or the city? Is it better to drive a thousand miles or take an airplane?
In NO IMPACT MAN, Colin Beavan tells the extraordinary story of his attempt to find some answers - by living for one year in New York City (with his wife and young daughter) without leaving any net impact on the environment. His family cut out all driving and flying, used no air conditioning, no television, no toilets. . .They went from making a few concessions to becoming eco-extremists. The goal? To determine what works and what doesn't, and to fashion a truly 'eco-effective' way of life.
Beavan's radical experiment makes for an unforgettable and humorous memoir in an attempt to answer perhaps the most important question of all: What is the sufficient individual effort that it would take to save the planet? And what is stopping us?
