WHY BUY NOTHING NEW?
Simply put. We’re using too much stuff.
We found looking into the ethics and supply chain of everything seemed overwhelming…
For us, the easiest way for us to buy in line with our values was to simplify, 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.
We buy nothing new because we want to be part of the solution.
Not the pollution.
What about you?
