At one point i used to waste so much money buying designer handbags, and for what? To be admired by random strangers? To be accepted into some sort of ‘elite’ club? Envied by friends? Looking back i realise i just lacked true purpose and direction in life. I was also looking for love and acceptance through an expensive, wasteful lie. Thankfully, i woke up. Now i dream about a waste-free world and really believe it’s possible if we start with ourselves.
I decided to learn a new skill that helps with this focus and am now making bags out of 100% palm leaf. They are reusable for years (depending on how u treat it), biodegradable and #zerowaste. They are also great for gifts. I know not all of you can make these bags, however, what you can do now is implement little changes into your lifestyle that will make a huge impact on the world around you.
Firstly, go vegan ofcourse! If you go for take away food, always take reusable plastic containers. Take a photo of business cards instead of taking the actual card. Shop in second-hand stores for pre-loved bargains. Use a menstrual cup instead of tampons. Always take reusable produce bags for fruits and veggies. Ride your bike to close destinations instead of driving. Bam. These are only a few tips, feel free to add more in the comments

Two fruitarian vegan gay guys here. We’re preparing to build our off-grid in Costa Rica.
Just wanted to say that you’re really inspiring to us. We love you!
