Living Lighter:
The Ultimate Luxury

Living Lighter is how I think about approaching a less wasteful lifestyle. There is an amazing zero-waste movement happening all over the world that is so exciting to watch and be a part of. But, for most, the words zero-waste feel unattainable and maybe a little off-putting.  But living lighter is something we can all do. It’s an everyday practice; a series of mini-challenges. We just need the tools. This is what inspired me to create a Living Lighter Discovery. For the last six months, I have been working on assembling a collection of the tools that help me live lighter. I am used to curating and telling one product and brand story at a time, so our first ever Living Lighter Discovery is different from our traditional model, but with good reason: to deliver on our promise to introduce our community to products that make our lives better and help us live lighter on the planet.read more
