Welcome to My Compact Year
On January 3rd, 2007, I read about the San Francisco Compact on our local television station's website. By January 4 I was IN! Could I really make it a year without purchasing my regular consumer goods? I ticked off the days....Jan. 1--everything closed for New Year's Day--no purchases. Whew! January 2--a magazine promising weight loss inspiration and secrets and two packs of safety pins for daughters goth apparel. Not a spending minute wasted here! Time for a new start and a chance to really think about my impact on the planet. Time for my compact year.
