Welcome to sustainably organised, a blog designed to help you organise your life one sustainable step at a time. My name is Vicki and I’ve always had a keen interest in the environment and trying to live a more “eco-friendly” life. I’m also a great believer in the fact that an uncluttered and well-organised life is a more stress-free and happy life. This is why I’ve combined two of my passions into helping others become more organised while taking the planet into consideration too.
If you look up the word “sustainable” in the dictionary there are two principal meanings: to be able to continue over a period of time and causing little or no damage to the environment, hence being able to continue for a long time. Both of these meanings embody what sustainably organised is all about – coming up with organisational tools and methods that not only keep you organised in the long run but are good for the world around us.
This is not meant to be a “zero waste” blog and being sustainable or attaining zero waste is an aspiration, not a goal, so there may be things that you see here that aren’t necessarily the most environmentally friendly option. Being zero waste, only buying food in bulk with no packaging etc. can be a very expensive way to live and certainly isn’t accessible to everyone. My aim for this blog is to try to cater for a wider audience and provide advice and options for a variety of lifestyles and budgets. After all, every little helps and even a small step towards a more organised or sustainable life can have a massive impact on your wellbeing.
Please check back on the 26th September for our first blog post, and in the meantime have a great day!
