Episode 179 | Pursuing Minimalism and Conscious Consumerism in a Materialistic World | Stephanie Seferian of The Sustainable Minimalists Podcast

Many of us strive to live a more minimal lifestyle in order to simplify our homes and lower our stress, but minimalism can also be good for the world around us!  In this conversation, Stephanie and I discuss what it looks like to become more conscious consumers as we continually minimize our homes.  If you are on a minimalism journey of any kind, this episode will inspire you to contribute to a more sustainable world through minimalist practices.

  • Shifting our mindsets about the cost of what we buy
  • Where to start when sourcing quality clothing
  • Reasons to prioritize natural fibers over synthetic materials
  • The value of repairing items instead of replacing them
