Do you have an easy tip to live more sustainably?
Doing small actions to start with and aiming for a lifestyle change. Right now I am moving into a new apartment, so used furniture and plant sticklings are on my agenda. I've also recently invested in a better bike since my daily communte can be quite long. And living sustainably should be a fun challenge. Maybe an accountability partner like a dear friend could help to start and set realistic goals?!
What does conscious consumption look like in your daily life?
Such a nice reminder to reflect on it myself! Whenever I buy fashion, I always wonder if it lasts another 3-4 seasons at least. And I set monthly budgets for clothes. Otherwise, I aim to consume things that help my mental hygiene at the moment; books, incense, and spending money on helpful apps (e.g. InsightTimer).
We care about adding something better. What do you add to your life to make it better?
I consciously add my everyday gratitude about the small things. Sunrays, smiles on the street, or inspiring people around you. They don't cost a thing!
