Now that I'm a work-from-home-Scrimp, I find myself watching a lot more movies to pass the time and keep it from getting too isolated and quiet here at the house.
Yesterday, I watched a documentary about "No-Impact Man," a journalist who decided a couple of years ago that he was going to attempt to live for a year with zero impact on the environment. He and his family stopped buying anything disposable, stopped eating meat, only ate local food, and even went so far as to shut off their electricity for 6 months.
I don't really have an interest in being that extreme. But the lifestyle appeals to me nonetheless. Mr. Scrimp and I do what we can to eat local and we'd like to try growing food and doing other things to generally limit our involvement with the synthetic wasteland that is so much of the modern world.
What about you? Does it even appeal to you? Or do you think the whole thing is blown out of proportion?
