Green Extreme: Mark Boyle Living Without Cash

Green Extreme: Mark Boyle Living Without Cash

Move over No Impact Man, Mark Boyle is living in a solar RV on an organic farm ... and he's given up cash. Take that! (Just kidding, Mr. Beavan. There's more than enough room for both of you!)

Anyway, about this Boyle character: He's really caused a stir at the Guardian, where he's writing about his experiment of living without money.

His reasons are what you might expect. Boyle writes: "We no longer have to see the direct repercussions our purchases have on the people, environment and animals they affect."

So in order to be the change, etc. he's given up most creature comforts. It's quite an extreme move. But he sounds like he's enjoying himself.

Is this an amazing idea being carried out by a pretty courageous guy? Or is it another eco stunt? What do you think?
