Colin Beavan decided to spend a year with as little impact on the environment as possible. He introduced the project to himself, his wife, Michelle, and his young daughter, Isabella, in stages: making no waste (composting, not buying anything with disposable packaging, not using anything disposable, etc.), using no carbon-producing transportation (cars, buses, trains, elevators, etc.), buying only sustainable food (grown organically within 250 miles, no meat or seafood), buying nothing new (except underwear and socks), using no electricity (except a little bit generated by a small solar panel), and minimizing water use. He also reversed the small remaining negative impact with positive impact through volunteering. He posted information on his blog and wrote this book.
