Life Lessons

By Stephanie Seferian

Parenting the eco-minimalist way is, well, difficult. It's also an 18-ish year commitment that goes directly against societal norms. I'm no expert, but I do believe that impactful parenting starts by capitalizing on teachable moments. On today's show I speak with Elizabeth Ireland about *exactly how* she passes 3 central eco-minimalist lessons onto her children.   Here's a preview of the 3 life lessons we discuss today: [9:30] Teaching children how to give [20:00] Preparing our progeny for life: The 'why' and 'how' behind decluttering [27:00] Imparting the elusive skill of not needing to get everything we want   Resources mentioned: Alltruists Impact Kits The Kindness Elves The Tree Lady Ten Things I Can Do to Help My World We Are The Water Protectors -- Thank you to our sponsors!
