"This is the perfect book for people that want to find a realistic roadmap to sustainable living." ―The Holistic Millennial
Eco-minimalism is a hot-button issue right now, and for good reason. Living a life with less can be the key to saving our precious planet.
Break the consumption cycle. There's so much to do, and way too much to buy. Whether it's through late night TV ads, social media, or other sources of influence, we are addicted to buying and then storing things. Sometimes we consume with no regret and other times we realize that we're doing more harm than good to our wallets and our homes. It's a constant cycle―one that many are longing to break. Who wants their hard-earned money to go toward something that soon ends up in a landfill?
A guide to eco-minimalism with a plan that is realistic. Manufacturing "stuff" exploits Earth's precious (and finite) resources. And then there's the harsh reality of where it all goes. Our discarded possessions ultimately head to landfills and contribute to environmental pollution, releasing greenhouse gases during breakdown and decomposition. Sustainable Minimalism is the solution. Empower yourself to incrementally incorporate the tenets of sustainable minimalism into your home and life. Learn to master the easiest tasks first and build upon your successes―a practical and stress-free process. Now that's sustainable!
A blueprint for sustainability and stress management:
- How to gain greater mental clarity and increase your free time with fewer possessions
- Environmentally friendly ways of decluttering and organizing
- Ways to improve your financial stability, while going green at the same time
- How to get organized and operate a zero-waste home
If you enjoyed books like Zero Waste Home, The Minimalist Home, or The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, you'll love Sustainable Minimalism.
