Here We Go!

For a while now, John, (my fiancé), and I have wanted to experience living differently. We’ve always been concerned about the environment and what we can do to save our planet.

After having read the book No Impact Man we decided to have the same experience as the author, (Colin Beavan), but in our own way, and here in Montréal, not in New York. The author tried to live for a year without having any impact on the planet. He found that there are lots of things we can get rid of while still living a comfortable life, but eventually we hit a limit to what we can do on our own while still enjoying our time here on earth. We’ll use his experiences to guide us in our own experiment to see if we can live here in Montréal making as little garbage, and as little recycling, as possible. This means that we can no longer buy food, or anything else, that comes wrapped in something that we would have to throw away or recycle.

We’ll start our experiment on the first day that we move into our new apartment. We’re moving to Verdun at the end of June and that will be our No Garbage Apartment. Is it possible? We’ll see!
