No Impact Man

We watched the documentary on No Impact Man at yesterday’s Transition Newcastle Meeting.

[It looks like the video is no longer available. It is available at]

It is a challenging documentary about a family who decide to reduce their impact on the environment by as much as possible.

It was certainly worth watching but I’m not sure how far I could go as they did, . (Michelle, the women in the documentary, really made it interesting and the dynamics between the couple is an important theme of the documentary.)

We are continually thinking about our lifestyle. We are shopping very rarely at Woolworths or Coles, we are getting rid of lots of stuff around the house, and we continue to reduce our energy use. It is good to think about what else we could do. How much could we reduce our car use by? Could we live without the TV for month? How little waste could we produce in a month?
