Kijk- en luistertip: Minimalism

Als je mijn weekoverzichten een beetje volgt of me persoonlijk goed kent, dat weet je dat ik zo min mogelijk spullen probeer te bezitten. En als ik dan terugkijk naar zo’n 2 à 3 jaar geleden, dan is die mindset echt totaal anders. Toen was ik echt een hoarder, meer was beter. Vooral als spullen goedkoop waren, dan dacht ik snel dat ik ze nodig hadden. Ik herinner me zelfs een moment waarop ik in de HEMA liep en slechts 1 ding nodig had. Dat vond ik raar en ik haalde er nog twee dingen bij die ik niet nodig had, zo ver ging het. Zoals ik al zei, nu is dat anders. Ik zou mezelf wel als minimalist omschrijven, al ben ik nog lang niet waar ik wil zijn. De mindset is er wel! Er zijn twee personen die me deels de ogen hebben geopend, Joshua & Ryan, ofwel The Minimalists.

The Hidden Impact by Babette Porcelijn

The past week I’ve read a book that has been on my list for a long time. I still remember the day it was launched. My social media blew up (I follow a lot of people who are concerned with the environment) and I saw the writer on television around that time too. I wanted to read this book so bad. This is the book that’s the basis of an eco-positive lifestyle, every person should read this! I’m talking about the book: The Hidden Impact by Babette Porcelijn.

7 reasons why we should ditch biodegradable plastics

This blogpost has been coming for a while now. In my daily life I am confronted with plastic all the time even though I try to avoid it. In stores, restaurant and on the market to name a few examples. Usually people respond in a positive way when I manage to avoid plastic, they think it’s a noble goal. However, sometimes I get a different response. Not a negative one. Just, different. Like the other day when I sat at Bagels & Beans and I asked for a smoothie without a straw. The waitress said: Don’t worry, they’re biodegradable! Nice try, but I still refused the straw. I am not a fan of biodegradable plastics at all. Today I’ll tell you why.
