Collectively, small lifestyle changes can make a huge impact on the environment–and your life. Looking for happiness and health? What’s good for the environment is also, it turns out, great for you. Here’s a collection of tips from the No Impact community.

For a year our family (two children and their parents) lived on a simple basis in the swedish mountains. One shopping tour per month, wooden fired stove, water from the river. We reduced our expences 1/12 and where healthy and happy. Did home teaching for our children. A fantastic year as a family between midnight sun and minus 33 celcius.

After following Colin’s blog for a long time and making many positive changes to my lifestyle, I began to seriously look at what I put on my body, everything from shampoo to soap to daily moisturizers. I learned to make organic salves and have now morphed it into a company called Sustainable Shanti. My daily face regimen has simplified into two basic items: soap and my Saving Face Salve. The results: my skin is clearer, happier, and healthier, and I stopped contributing my dollars to the mass market beauty industry. Plus, I now get to help others simplify and green their skin care regimen!

i am living more sustainably than i used to, but what i want to say is thank you for the movie. i read the book a while back. tonight i watched the movie. it has more impact for me than the book. i really like the bit at the end when colin says the best thing one can do is join an environmental group. about how important community is. thanks you a whole lot. in peace, greg

As a menstruating woman, I first made the switch from plastic tampons to cardboard. But recently found a cheaper and more environmentally-friendly means of taking care of my needs. The DivaCup! Look it up and give it a try. I absolutely love mine.
