Shoe Organising

How to organise your shoes and handbags

Having our shoes and handbags organised can make a world of difference. Shoes and handbags are something some of us take for granted, for others owning a pair of shoes is something they dream about. Shoes are there to protect our feet, make us feel good, get us to work, school or on the running track, but have you ever thought about the environmental impact they have on the planet?

Results from a pilot project CO2Shoes revealed that the phase which most contributes to the shoe’s carbon footprint is the manufacture of footwear components with a share of 58%, followed by packaging manufacture with 16%, assembling and finishing with 11%, end of life with 9%, and finally, the distribution of footwear to consumers with 6%.

The results also showed significant differences in the carbon footprint values of the shoes models (sandals, safety, etc.), ranging from 1.3 to 25.3 kg of C02 equivalents, with an average of 10 kg C02 equivalents per pair of shoes, including its packaging. Source CO2Shoes Continue reading

We choose to bring things into our lives and homes to make us feel loved, secure, attractive, healthy, wealthy and wise. But how much of this stuff truly makes us feel loved and secure?

Ask yourself

  • Is it living up to my expectations?
  • Is it delivering my hopes and dreams or is taking control of my time and space?
