Follow No Impact Week journeys at Heights Observer Blogs

Follow some featured bloggers at the Heights Observer blogs from Oct. 16-23, as they post their daily challenges and thoughts during Sustainable Heights No Impact Week. 

Sustainable Heights No Impact Week is open to anyone who wants to participate in the community-wide experiment that encourages people to take eight daily challenges to lower their carbon footprint and live a healthier and happier life--for a week. Easy online registration sends participants the fun and engaging "How-To Guide." You'll receive daily emails of encouragment and information. No Impact Week has its own Facebook page where participants can share their progress, thoughts, videos, and photos with one another.

Conceived by Colin "No Impact Man" Beavan, director of the No Impact Project, the experiment is part of the 2nd annual event sponsored by the grassroots Sustainable Heights Network, a group of citizens promoting sustainability in Cleveland Heights and University Heights. A number of events are offered and all are free and open to the public.

No Impact Week is open to people in the area who want to personally challenge themselves to pay attention to how they consume energy, travel around town, purchase or grow their food, and participate in the community. The concept behind the project is that individual efforts can have a huge impact on the creation of a more sustainable world.
