"No Impact" Week at Denison University

For a week, Olivia Aguilar's Environmental Studies 101 class entered a world with no plastic water bottles, no paper towels, no food waste, and no carbon footprint. For one week, the class attempted to have as little impact on the environment as possible. The week-long experience draws inspiration from the book "No Impact Man"in which author Colin Beavan spends an entire year learning to carry on everyday life with little or no environmental impact.
