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!’Continue reading “5 Tips for Minimalist Living” →
Have you ever wondered how much waste having a pet creates? Short answer: a lot.
From the basics like poo bags and food cans to toys and all those fancy pet accessories we don’t really need, pets give us a looot of room for waste.
I’ve tried my best to collect in one article all the tips and tricks to transform your pet care into a zero waste one!
I don’t know about you but, I usually carry with me
my entire house and fridge at least my laptop, a water bottle, some cheeky snacks, and quite massive headphones. So let’s say that handbags are only for special occasions and backpacks are a must in my life.
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.
I personally buy all my clothes second-hand, except for underwear (duhh) and activewear. And that’s simply because I can’t seem to find precisely what I need second-hand.
You might think of the bedroom as a room where you won’t use much energy. Nearly one-third of your life will be spent there unconscious, but you can still reduce energy use with a few small changes.
For years, I used regular tampons. It’s probably what many people reading this article are currently using. I didn’t realize that there were better options for my health, my bank account balance, and the environment.
As soon as I heard about menstrual cups, it was like a light bulb went off and it was this whole new world of eco-friendly awesome to discover. I’ve never looked back!
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.
Going low waste has made me excited about quite unexpected things, such as loo paper.
Ever thought that the paper you wipe your bum with could actually have a positive impact on the planet and the nice folks living on it? Nah, me neither, until I came across Who Gives a Crap!
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.
