No more toilet paper

07 Dec

This Tuesday night, find out what it’s like to live without TV, cars, take out, or toilet paper.

My friend Mike at MinusCar and I (actually, Sioux Falls Green Project) are hosting a FREE movie on December 8 called No Impact Man. The show starts at 7pm at Augustana College (Gilbert Science Center Rm 100), and I hope you’ll come. No Impact Man tracks the one-year experiment of Colin Beavan and his family, when they swore off all the Earth-hating stuff most of us do every day without thinking much about it, just to see if they could do it.

What they found was a happier, better, more meaningful life.

I’ve been a reader of Colin’s blog since early in his experiment, and have learned a ton from him. I think you would too. Right before the movie starts, we’ll be Skyping with Jamie Horter, live from the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, to see what she’s up to.

So, if getting smarter is your thing, or you just want to get away from something/one for a couple hours, RSVP here (Facebook) or here. If you come, please bring a cup from home. We’ll provide the toilet paper.

Here’s the movie trailer:

    It’s not for sale yet, but I do have a DVD you can watch. Only because you sent me some honey.
