Today is Black Friday. Sadly, it’s true that shopping and consumerism keeps our economy growing; that’s the system. It targets our perspective even more when there is one special day every retailer and consumer awaits. The line between what you truly need and what you want (because you’ve been tempted to) is blurred and we might end up thinking that materialism is the fundament to happiness. How wrong!
Happiness to me is when I use my brain and let myself go into my creativity. There are so many things you can recycle and upcycle, all the while maintaining your goal of living sustainable.
My recent upcycle were to beer bottles turned into vinegar and oil bottles. It looks very elegant and cost zero money. I used a cap for wine bottles and one specific for oil. Both I already had. I couldn’t wait to pour this year’s biological olive oil extra vergine into the bottle for serving. Bread , oil and salt – this is all you want!
