I always try to carry a tote bag around with me in case I pop to the supermarket while out, as I hate having to get plastic bags. If I do, then I end up using that to put all my plastic waste in! Luckily it seems more and more stores are introducing paper bags - I hope this becomes mandatory in the Read more… future. Good idea about the toothbrushes from @Bjoern I am guilty of buying new ones every few months, so need to find a way to stop that.. any tips on a good brand?
So much fruit and vegetable is packaged, so I try to avoid buying that and only get the non-packaged stuff. I think the onus really is on supermarkets to cut their plastic use first. In the UK there's a whole 'zero-waste' revolution starting in some shops which is so inspiring: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/food-and-drink/news/britains-best-zero-waste-shops-find/
This is very interesting and something I was thinking of too: I'm currently seeing English, German and Spanish language due to the people I have become friend with and the settings they have. If you speak the language fantastic, but not all of us will. Wonder if we have any settings for newsfeed Read more… languages preferences aside from only selecting to see happiness.com in English/German. The issues of a building a global community 😁🙏
Yep, the content team have just started more regular meetings and every week in the newsfeed you can expect to see at least three things: a happiness quote, magazine article, plus link to forum discussion. With time (and learning of the skills needed) we hope to incorporate some of the other Read more… features such as polls and surveys etc. Magazines will also always link to Forum now too, so please feel free to interact and share thoughts on topics there. ❤️
I love the idea of JOMO! Celebrating what we are supposedly missing! I think one that helps with living a more simple life is that humans are naturally very adaptable to our circumstances. When I moved to a quieter place after London I thought I would miss stuff, but actually no. Now I can't bear Read more… to go back there! Interesting how this changes with time and noticing it in the body and mind.
