Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

Low Impact Week contest winner!

Low Impact Week: June 1 - 7, 2007Well, you all certainly have made it hard to choose the winner of the Low Impact Week contest and I'm glad I had so many days to think about them all :) I'd list all the runner's up but the list would go on and on and on...

But, I have to say that I really liked EPM's answer. So, EPM (who has the blog, Capturing Today) email me at and I'll get your information to send the goodies your way. Oh yeah, and you may just have inspired me enough to give cloth wipes a try. I must be truly nuts. But I'll definitely blog about it in gory detail for my reader's entertainment.

Are you wondering what my favorite thing about Low Impact Week was? Well, although it did give me a kick in the pants to finally doing some of those things I said I was going to do, my favorite thing was you guys. I love how you all came together to support each other by visiting each other's blogs and leaving notes of encouragement. It was great to see. I know a lot of you feel like you live in a wasteland and there are no likeminded people out there. To learn and finally realize that you are not alone, that what you are doing is highly valued by others, was way more worthwhile than any other thing I did during this week.

Again, congratulations to everyone who participated in Low Impact Week! I'll be following up toward the end of the month to see how everyone is doing.

And... don't forget that I'll be announcing a new challenge this Friday, June 15th!

Thank you! Thank you! My girls are going to be so excited! Low Impact Week was such an inspiration for us to really get started doing what we needed to be doing in a much bigger way. I have such a great time reading all the comments from the readers and getting such good ideas from you all. What a wonderful community of people trying to make a difference in a society that is "indifferent" so much of the time!

Great job EPM! Crunchy: We've been happy to be acquainted with the winner here for the past several months and have found her to be a blessing in many ways, not the least of which as a resource for all things sustainable and local. She and her family are well-deserving of this recognition!

What a beautiful post, EPM! Conngrats.

And yes, Crunchy--do try cloth TP. You'll love it. There is a great forum discussion on Mothering about "family cloth" that you might enjoy reading.
