Norway teen living in cave to save environment
Posted on Apr 21 2014 | IANS
Oslo, April 21 : A 19-year-old girl in Norway has been living in a cave for almost a year now as she wants to reduce her environmental impact to close to nothing, the media reported.
Ida Beate Loken, a student at the Sogn Agriculture and Horticulture School, moved into her rocky dwelling in May 2013. She is using a high-grade sleeping bag to get her through the gruelling Norwegian weather, the Local reported.
"It's much more fun to stay there," Norway's TV2 network quoted Loken as saying.
Ida, who has a history of environmental activism in Sogn og Fjordane county, drinks rainwater she catches in a bowl.
