New blog post! Chats about 'un-buying', what happens to your clothing when you donate it, and my involvement in Eco Fashion Week Australia 2018. Thank you for the ❤️, lovers. https://asmallwardrobe.com/2018/08/02/ten-friendly-minimalist-life-hacks-to-live-by/

Malaysian based in australia here, love your videos, really inspiring me through my minimalist and lower waste journey. Today i just refuse a plastic straw for a drink and just drink it from the cup!

Most restaurants in my area of central PA forbid you bringing in your own water container. Like idk the thought process? Is it bc they want you to buy a drink, or…….

I'm enjoying your content so much – this was another very well thought out and phrased video. I couldn't agree more with the un-buying/donating part: I've recently been sorting through years and years of belongings, to free up space and time (upkeep), and rid myself of emotional clutter.
It's been a slow and sometimes extremely exhausting and time consuming project, and despite my efforts a lot of things end up being donated. Coming from an Eastern European country, there is the mentality of someone always wanting your clutter/belongings, either because it's free, and it's either truly needed or there is the thought that it "might just come handy / fear of needing"- but also even junk gets recycled in a way, often sold for parts. I did go through the process of having friends go through items, of trying to sell or swap things, to trying to donate to very specific charities, but sadly a lot of things do end up being donated less thoughtfully, due to lack of resources, or simply no one really wanting that item anymore. Luckily most of these smaller charities are mindful about what they accept.
This process is really changing my mindset and making me a more conscious buyer, as I consider the possibility of having to part ways with the item in a responsible way.

This is one if the best videos I‘ve ever seen on this topic! Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts! <3

Hi! Great video 🙂 I have a question for you; Where do you buy your second hand clothing (online)? Because I know from previous video's you have some Lacausa stuff second hand, but I cant seem to find as many wearable stuff from online second hand stores. Maybe I'm not searching right.. but it always is very expensive still, whit high shipping costs and mostly only really large sizes.. Thanks! x

I've used cloth shopping bags since 1985

do you sleep on the ground

Bren Kama says:

Great tips!! I have to say though I don't think selling of second hand clothes to developing countries is necessarily a bad thing. Cuz it's usually at a reduced price and also a source of income for a lot of families. Additionally, it's an excellent choice for a lot of young people and poor people who want to dress decently but don't have a lot of money. It's sort of like thrifting so eco-friendly still at the end of the day

Michelle Threefold says:

Pity one of those 2 supermarkets just changed their mind 🙁 In South Australia, we have had a plastic bag ban since 2009 – everyone gets used to it pretty quickly!

Denielle Alexander says:

Thank you for the awareness of your video. Knowledge is power. And I’m learning.
