I started thinking about the sustainability of mass tourism after moving to Prague, the Czech Republic's capital. The heart of Europe. The pearl of cities. A city that sees nearly 8 million (!) tourists every year. (1) Let me remind you that Prague has some 1,5 million inhabitants. The tourists - or should I say … Continue reading Sustainable traveling
I love shopping, I’m not gonna deny. I love Abercrombie&Fitch. I love luxury second hands. I could die for certain types of shoes. I am a jacket/coat freak. And you know what? There’s nothing wrong about it, as long as I always think twice before I buy something and I don't buy clothes that I’m … Continue reading My #minimumwaste wardrobe
I wasn’t born minimum waste. It came to me step by step. The key is to overcome the barrier.
