This morning, Inhabitat reader and environmental econ major Samantha Morton sent us her cool and quirky video, ‘The ABC’s of Living Minimally’. Created for one of her college electives this past semester, Samantha wanted to distill some of the world’s issues down into something digestible; and she came to the conclusion that over-consumption is at the root of the problem. Forgoing scare tactics and extremism, the message of her film is sweet and simple and highlights the importance of finding balance in our day-to-day lives. A zero-waste lifestyle is not for everyone, but everyone can start making small changes for the betterment of us all!
