No Impact Man

Colin Beavan

(Farrar, Straus and Giroux)

Review [14.Dec.2009]

All of us are annoyed by the people who reuse sandwich baggies and tin foil, but are secretly guilty that we don’t do the same. All of us are bothered when dinner plans revolve around the lone vegan in the group, but admit (only to ourselves) they have a point. Colin Beavan decides to take these practices to the next level. His aim is leave no carbon foot print, to have no trash, no toxins, etc. To essentially put his money where his mouth is; as an environmentalist. And he makes his family do the same, in New York City, no less. A smart gift idea for any tree-hugging cousin you might have, or the neighbor who offers to take your recycling out for you.
