10 Resolutions You Can Stick To

January 5, 2019 — 
Moving into a new year is always a bit challenging. We start off strong with promises like Dry January, hitting the gym 4 days a week and eating healthier. Some of these promises and resolutions stick, but for the majority of us, they fade off into the distance as we settle in to the winter semester. Instead of thinking about large scale resolutions, try focusing on smaller achievable tasks which will benefit your wellbeing, your wallet and the planet.

Try it out – Buy Nothing Day

November 22, 2018 — 
When was the last time you went shopping? Was it for something essential, like groceries, or something that could be considered a luxury? If you’re the average consumer, it likely wasn’t that long ago. How about the last time you went an entire day without buying anything, can you remember? In today’s modern society it’s very common for shopping to be pursued as a leisure activity, a way to take one’s mind off the big picture and relax for awhile.
