Living By Light

"Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind." -- Henry David Thoreau

Something that might be interesting in general is a web site devoted to ultralightness. It's called "UltraLight Living".

"UltraLight Living means less waste, less consumption, fewer possessions, a simpler life, and reducing our impact the planet. It means reducing the burden of materials in every aspect of life. With six billion human beings, we have to be smarter about how we use the planet’s resources."

It is owned by John Aebi-Magee.

There isn't much else to say except that it's worth taking a look. You might find something you never imagined.
