Help Stop the Poverty Cycle- Turn Clutter into Opportunities

After such a long association it was time to catch up with the Russell Croxford, ReStore Manager of Habitat for Humanity Victoria.

I started by asking what drives his team to do what they do and the benefits to society and our planet? Continue reading

  • Holiday
  • Top up the mortgage, pay rent, save towards a deposit
  • Pay off credit card bill, car payments

Celebrate a Sustainable Mothers Day

How to Celebrate Mothers Day in a Sustainable Fashion

Looking for ways to celebrate Mothers Day in a sustainable fashion, without adding clutter?  Let’s face it; we are enticed to purchase more stuff, but how many fluffy slippers, dressing gowns, new toasters and frying pans to make the perfect scrambled eggs does she really need? Do we really need to ramp up our consumption of ‘stuff’ just because it’s Mothers Day, to let her know that we love her? Let’s take a step back from that traditional Mothers Day gift list and rethink.

Put simply, if we have concerns about reducing clutter in our homes and reducing our carbon footprint and the impact of belongings on environment, perhaps our gifts could do with a change of philosophy. Continue reading

With the constant flow of new responsibilities and roles filtering into our workload, how are we to keep track of meeting notes, searching for files, and trying to stay up-to-date? In most cases it comes at a cost, a cost on our time, relationships and health.

How do we cope when we are pinged, tweeted, zoomed, facetimed trying to function on a diet of constant learning to keep up with new things, sifting through information, swapping quickly between tasks and multitasking? Generally speaking…not very well Continue reading
