Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend full of Halloween parties.
If your weekend was anything like ours, you’ll just want to skip to the good stuff, so without further ado, here are our favourite links from this past week.
- Trash Me: Not Your Typical Zero Waste Project
- Do you know how much garbage you create in a month? Rob Greenfield wore all the garbage he created daily for a full 30 days to show you how much he creates. We probably wouldn’t be able to carry a month’s worth of our own garbage, would you?
- A $31 Billion problem: How Canada Sucks at Reducing Food Waste
- We’ve mentioned the $31 billion statistic in our article about reducing food waste already. The amount of food that is wasted in Canada is staggering. Read more about the problem here.
- How to Use the Danish Concept of Hygge to Declutter Your Home and Lifestyle
- “Clutter has a draining effect on our minds, largely due to the fact that our brains are constantly taking in our surroundings, and processing the information it receives. The more clutter there is to process, the more energy we spend by simply absorbing our environment.” No wonder we’re tired all the time!
- Getting Rid of Just-In-Case Items: 20 Dollars, 20 Minutes
- We’re going to try this advice when we’re decluttering. If it’ll take less than 20 minutes and $20 to replace an item we’re hanging onto “just in case”, we’re getting rid of it. We think there’s a bin rental in our near future.
- People Around the World are Obsessed With This Household Decluttering Method
- You’re not a true fan of decluttering or a minimalism if you’ve never heard of Marie Kondo, the Japanese decluttering expert that’s famous for her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.” We can’t wait for our kids to be able to read, because this is going to be their first book.
