Associated Press Article About "The Compact"

The Compact (buy nothing new) movement that I have been part of for the past year-and-a-half just got a bit more attention.

An Associated Press article.

And suddenly the Yahoo Group that had been coasting along at 9000+ members got a lot more members.


Living a green lifestyle while saving money is suddenly all the rage.

Was living a debt-ridden wasteful life ever a good idea?

Every media outlet is filled with stories about recycling and re-using as a way to save money. I think it’s great if it gets more people to consider the environmental benefits too — hopefully that message will “stick” when/if the economy rebounds.
