1.) Used Clothes, Shoes, Computers, and Furniture - they don't make em like they used too! Besides, if you are like me you already have too many of at least the shoes!!
3.) No Car - good for the back, pocket book, planet, neck, reduces rage and anxiety, and also for your safety. There's one good thing about cars - singing to your favorite cds! So, we are just going to have to get less shy!! Another great way to use our voice: getting active with politics to help expand bus and rail lines in our area.
4.) No Fridge - need I say more? Okay this one doesn't count, we already know that... how about No War? War is the largest contributor to Global Warming in the world. Oppose war by writing congress. Here's a link for more info: http://www.rabble.ca/news/2009/10/fight-climate-change-ending-war
5.) Used or No Cell Phone or Blackberry - get one used if necessary. Our demand for the materials that go into these machines are causing wars in places like the Congo. Let the birds tweet more. We'll be okay...
6.) No Makeup, toxic creams, and shampoos - the junk from makeup and most commercial shampoos and moisturizers leeches into water and is even altering the sex of certain fish, and interfering with the development of the fertility of human beings. Also, many additives like parabems are suspected to cause breast cancer. I felt shy when I stopped wearing makeup, but hardly anyone else even noticed and it saved me so much time and helped me become more confident. You look better without it all anyway, take it from me! Or if you need more, then in the words of Andy Warhol: "People look more kissable when they are not wearing makeup." But there are also great natural, local products, and you can even make some things yourself. Check out this fantastic song by Ani: "Don't let the sellers of stuff power enough to rob you of your grace. Love is all over the place, there's nothing wrong with your face..."
7.) No Dryer, or Hairdryer: What the air provides us for free, humans shall not payeth away...
Besides... Isn't this the way bathing should be? I mean, when did we start asking the river to come to us...?
