Rob Greenfield Vasectomy

Why I got a Vasectomy… at age 25.

It’s been over two years now since I decided to get a vasectomy and I’ve never looked back. A few times I have been saddened when I was told the world needs me to have kids or when a girl was not interested in me because I can’t make a baby. However, in those rare moments I remember why I decided to do what I did and am quickly reassured it was the right choice for me. Today I share with you why I did what so few people of my age have dared to do in hopes of shedding light on a topic that is frequently brushed under the rug.

Lessons Learned from a Year without Showering

*Update 04/20/2015- Today is my 2 year no-shower anniversary! Enjoy the story I wrote a year ago today:

As of today it has been one year since my last shower. Yes, I know that sounds crazy and a year ago I would have agreed with you. I was a regular showering guy for the first 26 years of my life. Well, maybe not every single day, but just about.

It started with a long bike ride across the United States to promote sustainability and eco-friendly living. I set a bunch of rules for myself to follow to lead by example.

And I kept track of exactly how much I used too, with an aim of showing just how little we need to get by.

Good News in America with Rob Greenfield

Good News in the USA!

New in the United States is full of brain numbing, fear instilling, negative stories, but I am doing my part to change that!

In 2013 my activism was featured in 13 news stories that aired on over 30 channels across the USA.

My aim is to help wake this sleepy country up, and I’m using positive, inspiring, educational stories on the mainstream media to do so.

Here’s the highlight video of my news stories. I bet you can’t watch it without smiling 🙂

Humans. Nothing and Everything

When you look at our existence within a greater perspective, you grasp that we are quite small. The earth is nothing but a speck of dust within an infinitely expanding space. In the grand scheme of existence, each of us humans on this speck of dust are no more important than the ants crawling on the sidewalk or the bees buzzing by.

Everyday I cause harm. But it’s ok.

This is a summary of my actions that have a negative impact on the earth, people, and critters. This list is not all encompassing and I’m certain that I am not aware of some of the burdens I outsource. I am certain that I screw up more than this list can explain. I don’t shame myself, though, because I have come a long way and will continue to work on these issues.

21 Gourmet Dumpster Meals

Imagine living a week solely on food from supermarket dumpsters and turning that food waste into healthy, gourmet meals. That’s exactly what Brian Blum and I will do with the 21 Gourmet Dumpster Meals project this week, focusing attention on the amount of food that goes to waste in our country (estimated at $165 billion annually) while providing tips people can use to eat ethically, healthy, andsustainably. Proving we can eat more deliciously and nutritiously than the average American solely off food we find tossed in dumpsters, we will also fill an entire fridge and a few cupboards, provide food to people on the streets and make a huge meal for friends and the public!
