Who to Woohoo Wednesday: Colin Beavan

or Stephen Colbert... They both rock.

I love what No Impact Man Colin Beavan is doing, and have mixed feelings about the attention he's getting for doing it. On the plus side: he's bringing the issue of consumerism into the spotlight. On the downside, does it make it seem that a low-impact lifestyle is part of the lunatic fringe? I don't know.

I suppose what I want is for the Colin Beavans of the world to become so commonplace as to be completely unnewsworthy. I want Colin Beavans to be the norm, not the exception... but since we're not there yet, woohoo Colin Beavan! and thanks to Noelle Aguayo for requesting more Woohoo Wednesdays.

There's was a great episode of "30 Days" on FX (created by Morgan Spurlock) that followed a group of people who live like this. I give them much credit, because it's amazingly difficult to live a "no impact" lifestyle.
