Minimalism and Sustainability of Environment
Minimalist lifestyle can prevent the depletion of natural resources from the environment to a certain extent.
Today, minimalism makes sense to many people.
They willingly opt to own up that much which is essential for a comfortable living.
This urge to follow a simple minimalist lifestyle and consume less resonate with us because we all want to reduce the burden on this lovely planet called Earth.
Consumerism promotes maximum consumption of materials.
The huge demand for consumer goods means excessive use of:
a. Energy resources
b. Water resources
c. Land resources (soil)
d. Food resources
e. Forest resources and
all other natural resources.
If we continue to consume at this pace, minimum resources required to support basic needs for our healthy living will be unsustainable in a few decades.
This habit to consume more just because I can spend more may satisfy us now.
It is going to make life of our future generations difficult.
After adopting a minimalist lifestyle, people realize a good life does not depend on how much you can consume.
This earth-friendly concept values simple life experiences, healthy relationships and a healthy living environment for the collective human community.
Minimalism stops us from buying things just for the sake of buying and never use them.
Ultimately, those unused items reach the landfills as wastes.
Minimalism shifts our focus more on good quality purchases than good quantity.
Any good quality item lasts for years and will not be transformed into a waste product any time soon.
Minimalism promotes reuse and recycling of old materials in order to prevent wastage.
Minimalists practice digital minimalism as well.
Digital minimalism emphasizes on use of electronics and technology responsibly.
The intention behind digital minimalism is to decrease energy consumption by electronics goods.
Minimalism is not about depriving yourself from the necessities of life.
Minimalism aims to reduce wastage of materials and resources so that our coming generations can also live their best life on this beautiful planet.
