No Impact on the Environment Experiment

No Impact Project

No Impact Man, Colin Beavan, has put together a guide for you to try out his experiment: leave no impact on the environment for an entire year.

To make it easy he suggest you try it for a week. Starting with a no-trash Sunday, moving on to a no-trash and green-transport Monday, and working up to an impact free Saturday, the guide gives step-by-step instructions and tips.

And to add even more fun to something Colin Beavan swears has brought him more happiness, there is an online community so you can connect with others and share your experience.
