Welcome to The Good Life Company. We’re a couple on a mission to live life more sustainably by changing the way we do things – from how we travel, eat and shop, to everything in between. Check out our blogs to see some of our favourite eco-friendly products and recipes, and learn more about how you can live a more sustainable life.
We love to travel – but we know this can have a huge impact on the environment. We’re looking for ways we can reduce our carbon footprint, and give back to the communities that we travel to. Visit our Peak & Stumble travel blog for inspiration, and to learn more about our recent travels around New Zealand, as well as stories from our adventures around the world.
Food and cooking have always brought us closer together. We’re looking for ways to make our diet more sustainable by making changes to what we buy and where we buy it from, as well as growing more of our food at home. We’ve also got some great recipes made from ingredients you can grow yourself, or will already have in your pantry. Visit our Little & Large blog for more info and ideas.
Creating a home is really important to us, and we’d love to build a house using sustainable materials. For now, we’re searching for environmentally friendly products to fill our future eco-home (and wardrobe) with. We’re also looking to brush up on our up-cycling skills. Make sure you check out some of our projects and favourite products on our Fox & Moon blog.
Put simply, sustainability is about using the world’s resources today in a way that maintains their supplies for the future. In practice this means doing things that will lessen our impact on the environment – like reducing the amount of water and energy we use, eating locally and growing our own produce, relying less on cars and changing the way we purchase and use items.
How Can I Be More Sustainable?
First things first, you need to ditch those disposables and invest in more durable and ethically produced products – like bamboo toothbrushes and reusable water bottles. When you do decide to get rid of things you can recycle or resell them, or donate them to someone in need. It’s all about reducing the amount of waste and pollution you create and helping others to do the same. It’s also about being more aware of the impact you have on the world, as well as knowing where your food and products came from.
