Fossil Fuel Free Day

Spend a day without using any fossil fuels

On the next Slow Sunday, we invite you to spend the whole day without using fossil fuels of any kind! In solidarity with our regular columnist, Mark Boyle, who is spending a whole year without using fossil fuel, we can all get a glimpse of what life could be like if we began to live more simply, within the carrying-capacity of our local ecosystems.

So, turn off the TV, eat local, raw food, walk or cycle to see your friends and relatives and relax in candlelight at the end of a replenishing day! These are just some ideas for making Slow Sunday special.
