Living More Sustainably
Science has proven again and again that everything in this Universe is connected. Whether you look at String Theory, Quantum Entanglement or more it always concludes that everything is connected and what affects the individual, affects the whole and visa versa.
As humans we have become so conditioned to think that we are separate from our surroundings. From the Earth, the Air, the animals and insects, the oceans and everything that happens in the skies above us. This separation has lead us down a dark path of destruction. And if we continue with this way of thinking, who knows what type of future we will leave for the generations to come.

Sustainability has become some what of a buzzword, but it is our only way of reversing the damage that we have done to the Earth and all of it's inhabitants. Living in a more sustainable way makes us more aware of the choice we make now and the impact that they will have not only on us and our immediate surrounding, but the impact it will have on the world at large and future generations.
So you may be wondering where you can start to live more sustainably? Here are a few tips:

Repurposing is a fun and creative way to get started with sustainable living. This year Nescafé Ricoffy invited myself and a bunch of amazing influencers and eco-game-changers to repurpose one of their coffee tins. Nescafé Ricoffy now uses coffee beans that are 100% responsibly sourced for South Africa’s most loved instant chicory and coffee extract and is making strides when it comes to sustainable farming and production. By protecting growers and their environments it ensures the long-term success of their business.
Repurposing is the process by which an object with one use value is transformed or redeployed as an object with an alternative use value and the options are endless.
