Treehugger has me featured as part of a story called “12 one-year personal stunts we can’t stop talking about.” Wow. Really? The segment is about The Compact, and it talks about this blog. Click here to read the entire article, which includes No Impact Man and some other interesting people. They used this image to represent The Compact.
I hardly think I should be considered the public face of the group, which has thousands of members, most of whom have been doing this a lot longer than I have, and probably a lot better! But I’m very flattered, because it’s a cool website and it’s great to get the word out there.
Also, the “stunt” part is a little embarrassing. I was so clueless about what was already out there when I started this blog that I’d never heard of No Impact Man or any “my year of” projects. And about a month into it, I realized the name of my blog wasn’t even really accurate, because of course I’m still spending money, just not on STUFF. But I didn’t want to change the name, for fear of losing the few readers I had at the time. The technical aspects of all of this are not really my forte. I don’t even know how to put an accent mark on that “e” back there. Ha.
The website is a fantastic resource for all things eco-friendly. Thanks treehugger! I’m honored to be featured.
