Amy Blogging on Unconsumption

Rob Walker (Handmade 2.0, Consumed, Buying In) has started a blog tracking his idea of Unconsumption and recently asked me to be a contributor.

Unconsumption means using what you have instead of buying new, finding new uses for stuff you were going to toss, and "the accomplishment of properly recycling your old cellphone, rather than the guilt of letting it sit in a drawer." (Wow, amen to that last one!)

I started posting today on art made from junk, tables made from shredded magazines, and what to do with your yellow pages phone book.

It's good stuff, and the format - Tumbler - an interesting new online media form for me.

Check it out! And thanks for bringing me on board, Rob!
