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

Tanya Lewis is on a mission to prove that being organised needn’t cost the earth. Her approach and practical tips will help you discover the things you really need, and want – and make it easier for you to find them in your home.

Tanya’s emphasis is on regaining control over our time and space by using mindful and ethical consumption. Before we buy anything, she challenges us to think about the following questions: do I really need it? Will I use it? When I’m finished with it, how can I dispose of it?

Reminding us of the link between overconsumption and clutter, Tanya’s workshops are based on a series of practical, helpful principles to help us live a richer, happier life.

Learn

  • How to identify clutter
  • How to ethically declutter

  • How to turn clutter into opportunities

and start living the life you want, without costing the earth.
