Pairing down your life, getting rid of the excess and keeping only the essentials is a process, no doubt.
“But I might wear this one day!”
“But I need these 10 pairs of sneakers!”
“But I like clutter!”
The truth is we don’t really need much. And if we want to see our world alive and thriving for our kids and grandkids, some material sacrifices are on the table. To start minimizing, living consciously, and working towards reducing environmental waste, we say: start by making sure you have these 5 items, in some form or another. And as they say something lost (plastic water bottles, synthetically made clothes, paper cups), something gained (a simpler, easier, even cheaper life).
1. AN EVERYDAY, REUSABLE TOTE
FOR GROCERIES, WORK STUFF, CARRY ALL
2. WATER PITCHER
TO PURIFY YOUR WATER & FILL UP YOUR REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE
3. A BLACK TEE

4. A PAIR OF SNEAKERS
TO WALK MORE, DRIVE LESS, AND REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
5. A REUSABLE
TO GET YOUR FIX WITHOUT CONTRIBUTING TO PAPER PRODUCT AND PLASTIC WASTE
