Simply put. We’re using too much stuff.
“we’re living beyond our means – we’re consuming 50% more natural resources than our Earth’s ecosystems can replenish.” WWF One Planet Living
Looking into the ethics and supply chain of everything can seem overwhelming…
So we thought the easiest way to simplify, was to buy less of everything and buy everything we can second hand.
Extending the life of existing goods (buying second, up-cycling, re-cycling, sharing, swapping etc) maximises the energy and finite resources that goes into our stuff while keeping it from landfill.
