Declutter Your Home with advice from Tanya Lewis EcoOrganiser, 4 October 2018
How to Ethically Declutter and turn clutter into opportunities
Ecologically-aware organiser and author Tanya Lewis challenges us to rethink consumption, turn chaos into opportunities and free ourselves from the vicious clutter cycle to regain control over our time and space. Tanya Lewis is on a mission to prove that being organised needn’t cost the earth. Her approach and practical tips will help you discover the things you really need, and want - and make it easier for you to find them in your home.
Tanya's emphasis is on regaining control over our time and space by using mindful consumption. Before we buy anything, she challenges us to think about the following questions: do I really need it? Will I use it? When I'm finished with it, how can I dispose of it?
Reminding us of the link between overconsumption and clutter, Tanya's workshops are based on a series of practical, helpful principles to help us live a richer, happier life.
