5 Tips for Minimalist Living - Zero Waste Nest

5 Tips for Minimalist Living

Time to take your Marie Kondo-ing to the next level. The latest binge-worthy Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, has viewers in fits and starts of decluttering. Secondhand shops say they’re swamped with donations. I could barely get through the doors of several consignment shops in my city before being turned away, with an apologetic ‘we’re not taking anything, we have too much stuff!’

7 Sustainable + Ethical Sportswear Brands

Fashion can be quite a wasteful industry, that’s big news for no one. That’s why I strongly recommend buying your clothes second-hand if you have the chance to have thrift stores near you, or if you have access to websites or apps that connect you with people selling their clothes. Another great option is to rent your clothes but that does not really apply for activewear.

Reduce, Reuse, REPAIR, Recycle

I often get asked, “What should I do with my less sustainable things? Shall I get rid of them?” And I am always startled by that question. Buying all the bamboo things and stainless steel containers can surely be the right thing to do as some point, but only when you really need it and have examined all the other options at hand. The first and eco-est/greenest thing to do before that is to make the best use of what you already have, often by repairing things.

Eco-Friendly Yoga Guide

I started a regular home yoga practice around two years ago, right after deciding that working as an Android developer wasn’t for me and that I’d be way happier working on projects that actually matter to me instead of contributing to getting the CEO of a lucrative business even richer. Yep folks, that was the year I made lots of good decisions for myself!

Anyways, I got into yoga and it was love at first sight. As I was practising almost every day, it quickly made more sense to bring my practice at home instead of losing half a day commuting to a yoga studio and back.
