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!

Thanks for posting this. I wish I had gotten around to watching it sooner. This is exactly what I’m trying to do right now. Downshift. I love that. It says it all in one word. One book that has really inspired me is Drinking the Rain: A Memoir by Alix Kates Shulman. A friend reccomended it when I described to her what I was trying to do. This has been very hard for a packrat. But that book has really motivated me and now I have this little movie to add to list as well.
