Five tips for simpler living every day

Ah, summer: long and lazy days, simpler living.  If only all seasons could be that way.

Perhaps they can be.  Here are five tips for simpler living every day, courtesy of Tovah Paglaro, the David Suzuki Foundation’s Queen of Green:

  1. Acquire only what you need. And choose used before new.
  2. Buy the best your budget permits. Broken items are wasteful clutter.
  3. Clear out unessentials. Less stuff means reduced dust and improved environmental health. Fewer emails allows more time for baking bread.
  4. Share. The sharing economy connects communities, while cutting back on consumption and clutter.
  5. Donate.

Good for you, good for your community, good for the planet.  The original article elaborates a bit; you can read it here.
