The Eco-Luxe Lifestyle Challenge

I’ve been reading a lot lately, The Magic Art of Tidying Up, No Impact Man, and French Women Don’t Get Fat (among many others) and I’ve noticed few running themes among these seemingly unrelated books.

Take care of yourself by getting rid of the uneccesary, walking more, and relishing in the important things.

It’s a bit too simple seeming, isn’t it?

Regardless, I want to keep growing and to work more smartly on acheiving my goals.

So what are my goals?

  1. Stop producing garbage
  2. Get rid of things that don’t bring me value or joy
  3. Get fit and eat more cleanly
  4. Further reduce my environmental impact
  5. Keep pivoting as I learn and grow

I suppose that could mean my goal could be summed up in one word: growth.

The first step towards acheiving my goals is to read to A Zero Waste Life by Anita Vandyke. The description appears to be a sort of guide to achieving zero waste in 30 days. Hopefully it’ll be taken with new tips day by day so it’s not a try to incorporate everything all at once book.

Regardless, expect many many more posts.

As for tonight, I will do some more tatting with my vintage shuttle and secondhand thread and a reused mint tin.
