I haven't always been this way -- Consumption - it's kind of a big deal -- Mindful consumption (when you don't have time) -- The skinny on waste -- Eat -- Clean -- Beauty + body -- Out and about -- All you need is less -- At home -- Fashion -- Kids -- Gifts + celebrations -- Being an all-round consumer -- Bringing others with you.
How do you reduce your impact when you don't want to compromise your lifestyle? How do you live lighter when you're juggling the motherlode of life? How can you become more mindful of how and what you're consuming? In a previous career, Nicola Turner's job was to understand shopper behaviour and convince us to buy more -- she now uses this insight to help us consume less. With her unique ability to keep it real, Nicola shares how her family now lives with less stuff, less waste and less impact. It's made life simpler, saved heaps of time and money and created a healthier, happier family. Filled with actionable ideas and practical hacks, Living Lightly is for everyday people who want to simplify their life and reduce their impact but feel they're just too damn busy. It's all about making simple changes that work for you -- and not letting perfect get in the way of good.
