Thanks to parenthood, we all have a closet, cabinet, or drawer that has accumulated stuff you don’t even remember owning. Remember that minimalism looks different for everyone, as we all have different lifestyles and needs to live comfortably. You are doing it right as long as you surround yourself with things that are useful in keeping your family happy and healthy – studies show that kids thrive in a more simplified setting.
Regardless of what you own now, you can make conscious decisions moving forward by supporting companies who share your values. Vote with your dollar, consider the money you spend on product being a direct message to companies that you support their ideals. Today, it is easier than ever to find recycled, cruelty-free, and ethically sourced products for your daily needs. Choose an Action to get started and raise up companies who do their part in caring for the health of people, animals, and the planet.
