In general, we buy and accumulate items, clothes and furniture.
We are becoming too materialistic (some of us).
However, it is possible to live with less products around us and reduce unnecessary spendings - which will give us a healthier lifestyle and available cash; thank you to our savings account and consequently, able to focus on valuable expenses such as food.
Zero Waste an be seen as a real challenge, but it is certainly not that hard. It is all about willing to achieve something good for our planet and future generations.
First thing, why do we buy so many clothes, shoes, newspapers and packaged (not so fresh) food?! It is essential to purchase what we need rather than what we want...a major factor influenced by constant advertising, making us believe that we truly need to get the latest tablet, smartphone or other trendy garment.
A bedroom should not be cluttered - in fact, it should be as minimal as possible for a peaceful and healthy life and resting nights.
Reducing the amount of furniture in the bedroom is always a good point because you don’t need more than a bed, a light, and possibly a wardrobe. Less objects means less to clean, or replace when it breaks.
When clothes reach their end of life, donate all wearable to your local charity shops or homeless centres - you will make other people happy.
When you shop make sure you have a specific list of items to hand. This will limit the likelihood of compulsive buying. Get one of these reusable shopping bag. Usually once too old, the retailer will exchange it free of charge for a new one too.
