I heard this week from one of my favourite minimalist blogs about a blogger writing exclusively about buying nothing. And he’s local to me! Well, sorta. Lots of inspiration at this blog for simple living, but here’s a few of my favourite posts (so far) from Not Buying Anything:
Reducing consumption reduces harm – It’s important we take the time to consider the environmental impact of our purchases, and whether we need to make certain purchases at all.
Putting our eco-footprint on a diet – I find having goals helps challenge my thinking and behaviour. I’m striving to reduce my carbon footprint by living a less wasteful life – some of my goals include consuming less animal products, refusing wasteful packaging, and continuing to walk and use public transit in lieu of driving and flying.
Simplicity is Freedom – Simplicity really is freeing. Give it a try, you just might like it.
Reducing food waste – I’m creating a “just-in-time” household, in an effort for our family to reduce any unnecessary food waste. We’re pretty good about eating leftovers and using food before it goes bad, but this blog post has a few extra great ideas on how to manage food waste.
Change for a dollar – A beautiful video on how a little kindness goes a long way.
Enjoy and Happy Tuesday! ❤
