After watching a documentary on minimalism, I decided that I wanted to waste less and figure out how to do so without changing my life too drastically.
I would like to tell you that I am a perfect citizen of the world. That I know which plastic we can recycle and which one we can’t, at all times. That I make all my meals with products that are organic and local. That I only buy what I need; no waste, even in the wardrobe.
I really wish I could. It would probably make you hate me but still, it would be good for me and the environment. I am far away from the incredible human that I just described. But I am working on it. I definitely want to waste less. Figure out how to do so without changing my life too drastically is my new objective.

I have been thinking about waste in general; not only of food, money and things, but mostly of our energy. The final awakening arrived after watching a documentary called Minimalist (that you can find on Netflix if you are interested) while trying to figure out how to bring all my useless stuff from Paris to London. It’s unbelievable how many things we own that we have never and we will never use.
Untouched clothes, forgotten shoes, already read books, cards, empty notebooks (probably from before the rise of the computer), a thousand lipsticks. Useless. I am not telling you that I “saw the light” and I threw everything away because I didn’t and it would also be a waste. What I did do though was a lot of thinking and realising that my life would be so much easier without all the stuff that is supposed to make it simpler for me.
I will talk about the different aspect of less is more in the coming days, in the meantime, watch the documentary if you have the time and the will. I would like to know if anyone feels trapped by their useless s… stuff!
