Babies and sponges have one thing in common. Do you know what that is? The fact that they both absorb everything! So how about transforming your current way of things into an eco-friendly lifestyle? You can start right here with these 6 easy eco-friendly parenting tips to raise an eco baby.
Who doesn’t like buying inexpensive stuff in good conditions? Or finding some antique vintage items to decorate or use at home? I enjoy going to the flea markets because is a way to fight consumerism and helping reduce the amount of waste. How? Buying second hand! Is less expensive, you are giving a second (sometimes even third) chance to items or clothes and most of the cases are in great condition.
Remember back in October we shared the Just Eat It documentary about food waste? One fellow blogger (Nadine from Zero Journey) let us know they were the creators of this docu about consumerism and waste (which I hadn’t seen it back then). So, highly recommended if you are starting a zero-waste journey!
I love flea markets, I love second hand shops. If I can find something I like, or something I think it would be useful or “pretty” but is cheaper than if I would buy it on a store… I really wouldn’t mind if it was already used, as long as is still functional. I support this market because I think is part of an “eco-lifestyle”. What would be the point of upcycling and reusing if I’m buying more and more stuff from the big companies/stores? To me, I’m supporting the local business but also I’m avoiding the big consumerism. “Somebody’s trash, may be somebody’s treasure”. And if that comes with the “plus” of helping some charity cause, even better!
