A writer has made sustainable living in New York City a fashionable item even if not entirely feasible for most. This idea is obviously meant for a single person without a family or pets. Felice Cohen mentions that in the upper west side of the city most apartments go for at least $3,600 a month but on her freelance writer salary she can’t quite afford this rate. What she can afford is a 90 square foot micro-studio that is light on her pocket and the environment. The micro-studio boasts no kitchen, so she uses a cooking burner and other items that she can easily cook with but carry very little emissions. Along with this she also has limited space which she uses very wisely. In a popular YouTube video circulating the web, Felice shows us her tiny kitchen (toaster oven, hot pot and mini fridge), the toilet where she bumps her knee and her now-cozy lofted bed.
