Reduce both buying and consuming. Not only will your carbon footprint get smaller, you’ll also save money, save time, and feel so much less stressed and overwhelmed. Lean living can be fun!

Use your buying power

Reduce waste

We don’t need to reuse or recycle the things that we don’t have, to begin with. What do we really need? Minimalism is not everybody’s piece of cake, but consciously noticing what we buy, which environmental costs are related to those products, is something that each of us can consider.

Reduce consumption

Less is more. Do we really need to eat strawberries all year round? Isn’t it enough (and actually something special to look forward to!) to buy them when they are in season? This french Camembert (unless lucky you lives in France…) is very tasty – but is this pleasure really worth the environmental costs?
