Need a week-long carbon cleanse? Still time to register for No Impact Week with @YesMagazine & @NoImpactProject

Reducing your personal and family environmental impact is probably nothing new to avid TreeHugger readers, but even if you're an old hand at this, YES! brings up some important questions to consider that go beyond the metrics of greenhouse gas emissions, amount of waste reduced, items recycled, etc. By focusing on living even greener for a week YES! says you'll be forced to: Address living well without modern so-called conveniences; think about "which expenses actually make me happy and improve my family's quality of life" and which ones "just eat away at my time and money"; and, importantly (it is Climate Week, even though really every week is climate week, recognized or not), start really thinking about what your carbon footprint is really like. Interesting? Then register to participate --there's still time--and check out what YES! has in store for you. Intimidated? YES!...
