Environmentalism = Primitivism? Where'd You Get That Idea?

March 23, 2007

I am left speechless by this New York Times article about an environmentalist couple who have given up even toilet paper in order to "save the planet." It is a "lifestyle experiment they call No Impact. Its rules are evolving...but to date include eating only food (organically) grown within a 250-mile radius of Manhattan; (mostly) no shopping for anything except said food; producing no trash (except compost); using no paper; and, most intriguingly, using no carbon-fueled transportation."

How exactly could one parody this?
