Is it time to declutter?
Holidays, news year’s resolutions and the desire to start the year with things in order often lead us to look at what we have in the cupboards and what we really need. At home and at work there is always a cupboard, a drawer or a shed that has been filled with stuff we haven’t used for a while. Decluttering can be a bit of a challenge when we are wanting to be environmentally responsible.
Tanya Lewis, author of STUFF OFF! and founder of The10R’s ©, and her team are specialists in thinking outside the square. Tanya created Eco Organiser
after realising her passion was helping people organise their TIME and SPACE- and to do it in an environmentally responsible way.
Tanya’s website provides great tips and information on how to declutter, how to keep your stuff tidier and where to recycle the stuff you no longer need.
Remember: there is no such things as away, everything must go somewhere. Buy less stuff and declutter sustainably.
