Although Minimalism has become a bit of a buzzword recently, it’s a good idea, helping us to choose to live more mindfully and appreciate things more deeply.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Did you know that thrift shopping is good for more than just your budget? Buying second-hand clothes, appliances and shoes is also great for the environment.
There’s no denying that we’re currently dealing with a global climate catastrophe, and it’s more important than ever that we all begin fighting together to tackle the problem. Thankfully, there are a number of small changes every household and individual can make to start fixing mankind’s biggest issue right now.
Plastic is currently one of the most damaging substances on the planet, and due to the nature of how it breaks down, it’s even finding its way into our bodies at an ever-increasing rate.

We, as a collective, are starting to realise the ramifications of climate change. From rising sea levels to increased warming from unchecked carbon emissions, thousands of scientists across the world are screaming for action to be taken, and with over 123 countries taking part in school marches and protests, we may yet see governments around the globe start putting in stricter policies to control the amount of damage we’re doing to the ecosystem.

Veganism is no longer just a trend or a contentious dietary choice. Nowadays, it is a massive international movement that promotes the health of both the planet and the people on it, not to mention the well-being of animals too.
Every aspiring and seasoned gardener will already know that composting is an amazing practice for their garden, their local ecosystem, and the planet in general.
Reducing clutter is the first step on the road to minimalism, but we are the first to admit that it’s actually a rather hard step to take, and one that may need a little guidance.
