2. Consume less with the Buyerarchy
Are you already familiar with the Buyerarchy? This 5-step plan was designed by the American illustrator Sarah Lazarovic. A Dutch version was developed for Network Conscious Consumption. This community wants to make reducing the norm so that we can make society more sustainable with a modest life
Run new intended purchases through this pyramid and you may discover new opportunities that save you a lot of money. The less you consume, the better for the world and for you too.
3. Buy larger or refill packs
In the supermarket and also in our webshop you can find multi-packs. Less packaging material and often more economic. Although the price is higher at first glance, it pays to see how much you get for it.
€€€ Budget tip; relate prices to the volume and then compare. Usually you’re better off buying larger volumes.
4. Share, trade or sell your stuff
Do you have items that you rarely or never use? Think about bartering, selling and sharing. There are all kinds of ways to earn, save or help someone else with your abundance.
For example, take a look at your wardrobe. Are there any garments you never wear? Give your clothes or shoes a second life through vintage shops, Marktplaats or Vinted. Through an app such as Peerby, you can rent and lend items in your neighbourhood. Researching these kind of platforms can give you a nice perk.
There are also many people and families who are having a hard time at the moment. You can also consider giving your abundance away for free through charity or through your social media to someone in need. #cool2beKind
