It’s Downshifting Week, and I hope you are able to simplify and spend more time with your family. April 21-April 27 is National Downshifting Week, created by sustainable living writer and broadcaster Tracey Smith. During this week, citizens in the UK and US are asked to “Slow Down and Green Up!”(Please see our previous post!)Tracey has also been featured in the Grist’s Interactivist column. You have until tomorrow (Wednesday) to submit questions for Tracey. Visit the Downshifting Manifesto to track your progress this week towards improving the life of your family and the planet. And, mmmmm, don’t forget the fair trade chocolate!
