I’m challenging myself to stop buying brand new clothes, accessories and homeware for the whole month of September. Could you switch to second-hand?
Before I moved last year, I did a giant declutter. Less to pack = less to pay to move = less to unpack at the other end. Win-win! However, I really didn’t want to just throw hundreds of individual items directly into the bin, so I tried to make a conscious effort to get rid of things sustainably.
Now, I know I’m not the most eco person out there. But I’m trying. I thought that if I wanted to make a dent on all the plastic I throw out on a yearly basis, the best things to target are the things I throw out on the daily.
