to Save the Planet and the Discoveries He Makes
about Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process

See what Texas State students are saying about No Impact Man
For one year, Colin Beavan swore off plastic and toxins, turned off his electricity, went organic, became a bicycle nut, and tried to save the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his young daughter and his Prada-wearing wife along for the ride. Together they attempted to make zero impact on the environment while living right in the heart of Manhattan, and this is the sensational, funny, and consciousness-raising story of how they did it. With No Impact Man, Beavan found that no-impact living is worthwhile — and richer, fuller, and more satisfying in the bargain.
"The No Impact Experiment changed Colin Beavan and reading No Impact Man will change you." — Annie Leonard, creator of "The Story of Stuff"
