Minimalism is one of the latest trends in health and lifestyle, offering a richer life lived with 'less'. It's gaining widespread attention for it's slower, more conscious and connected way of living in our busy, always-available 21st century.

Similar to the Zero Waste movement, minimalism encourages us to think creatively about reusing and recycling.

Here are some simple, every day tips to get you started:

  • Invest in a refillable water bottle and/or coffee mug instead of buying plastic/polystyrene daily.

  • Bring your own cutlery/straws to work or school instead of reaching for the disposables on hand.

  • Reuse plastic shopping bags at supermarkets or turn into bin liners.

  • Use machine washable napkins and handkerchiefs instead of one-use tissues and paper towels.

  • Opt for paperless bills or use the backs of papers/letters as scrap paper.

  • Wash food jars and put to work as food storage containers or plant pots.

  • Cut up old fabrics or t-shirts and use as cleaning rags.

  • Set aside your food scraps to compost in the garden.

  • Buy multi-purpose cleaning products instead of having a selection of specific single-purpose ones.
