04. A Conscious Home

WHY IT MATTERS
Our homes are a natural place to continue our conscious consumption overhaul. They are the space that provides comfort, warmth and protection for our families but they can also become a catch-all for a lifestyle filled with more than we really need. Fortunately, minimalism is an emerging solution that many consumers are using to eliminate wasteful excess and environmental impact. Minimalism is actually quite simple, it comes down to quality over quantity.

 

CONSCIOUS STEPS YOU CAN TAKE
• Buy organic and eco-friendly textiles when possible
• Invest in consciously made furniture
• Before purchasing any item, imagine where it will live in your home and how long it may last
