Group Description

Untitled Document

Welcome to The Compact.

We are a group of individuals
committed to a 12-month flight from the consumer grid (calendar year 2015).

The Compact has several aims (more or less prioritized below):

  • To
    go beyond recycling

    in trying to counteract the negative global environmental and socioeconomic
    impacts of disposable consumer culture and to support
    local businesses, farms, etc. -- a step that, we hope, inherits the revolutionary
    impulse of the Mayflower Compact.

  • To
    reduce clutter and waste in our homes
    (as in trash Compact-er).

  • To
    simplify our lives
    (as in Calm-pact)

We've agreed to follow two principles (see exceptions etc. on our blog).

#1 Don't buy new products
of any kind (from stores, web sites, etc.)

#2 Borrow, barter, or buy used.
