imperfect sustainable living
THE WAY WE DESIGN OUR LIVES IS COMPLETELY UP TO US
a sentiment that ignites an immense amount of inspiration and hope into our lives. as we start the new year i want to embrace a more sustainable, slow living lifestyle. by no means am i perfect - i still love to shop and enjoy the finer things in life but i do believe all of our actions count, no matter how trivial it may seem. i strive to minimize my carbon-footprint as much as possible and embrace imperfect sustainable living. the goal of these habits is to welcome and embrace positive changes. i hope you’ll find these sustainable tips realistic and attainable. augustnoa just kicked off mindful mondays on instagram to share slow fashion, environmental impact and sustainable living. I’d like to use this platform and build an inclusive eco-conscious community.
i’d be honored if you’d follow us on instagram if you haven’t already, where i’ll share lots of content on imperfect sustainable living. let us embark on this journey together!
