The Low Impact Life series is a way to capture what it actually looks like to live a frugal low impact life. From my point of view it feels like it isn’t much different from living a “normal” life but I thought that it might be fun sharing aspects of my life that maybe stray somewhat from norm. So I will share a post every Saturday with short frugal or low impact tips that I do in my own life.
What I want to share from this week is how it pays off to always be prepared for the weather to change when biking. I always stuff rain pants and a rain jacket in my backpack so I have it just in case. This week it really payed off since when I biked to work on Thursday morning the sun was shining and there was blue skies as far as the eye could see. Come three o’clock I was looking out the window at totally grey skies with rain falling sideways. But instead of letting it ruin my mood I just pulled on my rain gear over my office clothes and my non water proof jacket, put on a great podcast and biked home in the rain.
