Now more than ever, we live in a society where we covet new and shiny things. Not only has consumption risen dramatically over the last 60 years, but we are damaging the environment at the same time.
Tara Button has become a champion of a lifestyle called ‘mindful curation’ - a way of living in which we carefully choose each object in our lives, making sure we have the best, most classic, most pleasing and longest lasting - kettles, desks, pots & pans, scissors, coats and dresses, instead of surrounding ourselves with throwaway stuff and appliances with built-in obsolescence.
There are 10 steps to master 'mindful curation', each is explained in this book. From understanding and using techniques to freeing yourself from external manipulations, learning how to let go of the superfluous and how to make wise choices going forwards.
