Being mindful of what we really need, and how we get it, gives us more time to enjoy the amazing things we have, and get rid of unnecessary physical and mental clutter:

  • Mindful consumerism means we know what we truly need, and get it in ways that cause as little damage as possible
  • Reducing the amount we need to spend to live enables us to get free of debt, and start making choices based on what we want to do rather than what we have to do
  • Adopting a ‘2 tonne lifestyle’ reduces energy consumption whilst maintaining comfort, and allows the generation that is now growing up a better chance of having a world that can support their needs in the future
