This has been something I’ve been wanting to write for a while. I have been pushing myself to join the movement and either live a life of no-waste or at least less waste. I’ve been pushing myself to not buy new as much as possible and to not make impulse purchases. It’s hard, and I don’t always succeed, but I’ve been trying and that’s what matters, right?
I see a lot of posts on my expat facebook groups about people who are looking where to donate things, where to go thrifting, where to recycle or reuse things and it’s tough not knowing the ropes of a city or the culture of donation and thrifting. It’s especially hard when you don’t know the correct terminology and google translate can only tell you so much.
This page will not just be a simple list. I am hoping to make an “everything-you-need-to-know” guide of how and what to do to start making the push to live an anti-gaspi (anti gaspillage, meaning “no waste”) lifestyle.
What I will be covering:
- Clothing Thrift Stores
- Home Goods and Other Items Thrifting (Ressourceries)
- Where to Donate
- Reducing Food Waste
- Organizations and Non-Profits to get Involved with
Check back as I update the page and continue writing to help you live the “anti-gaspi” lifestyle!
