Simplicity

It’s an overwhelming task to reduce what we use, own and consume. One of my big simple living goals is to reduce my waste to minimal levels. I’m not sure ill ever get down to zero waste (although I highly commend those who take the notion to heart), there simply will always be some waste […]

Space
