Simple living is more than
a trendy catch-phrase; its a way of life. Our modern, first-world
lifestyle is built on over-consumption, and its taking its toll on
much of the worlds resources. This means that precious commodities
like freshwater, forests, oceans, topsoil and almost all of our valuable
minerals and metals are disappearing at an alarming rate. We are leaving
very few resources for those in developing nations or our own children
and grandchildren, right here in the United Statesand our carbon
footprint is as big as the hole were leaving behind. Making sure
that we purchase products that are sustainable and fairly produced is
hugely important, but lowering our consumption and carbon footprint
overall is equally if not more important.
Taking some time to make changes
that will lower our collective carbon footprint is one of the most important
things we can do to ensure a sustainable future.
Simple living (or
voluntary simplicity) is a lifestyle individuals choose to minimize
the ‘more-is-better’ pursuit of wealth and consumption. According to
Duane Elgin, “we can describe voluntary simplicity as a manner
of living that is outwardly more simple and inwardly more rich, a way
of being in which our most authentic and alive self is brought into
direct and conscious contact with living.” (Wikipedia)
Simple living is also a powerful
way to lower your overall carbon footprint while creating more time
for family and community.
