Hi I’m Megan.
Welcome to Trace Lifestyle. This blog is a celebration of slowing down, loving what we have, buying less, buying better and knowing where our things have come from.
Slow living is my way of trying to reduce my negative impact on the world around me. Slowing down is how I choose to try and counteract our speed obsessed, unsustainable world. Follow my journey towards a slower, more considered (and hopefully happier!) lifestyle.
These are the values I try to live by. It’s what I believe in and what I stand for.
Transparency is the first step to creating a more ethical and sustainable world. Only through openness and honesty can we fully understand the impact our purchases have, both on people working in supply chains and on the environment.
Being conscious to live in a way that considers our impact on the environment. Every single person can make a difference, I believe we are all responsible for our own footprint and the part we play in the overall effect human life is having on planet earth. We need to hold our hands up and take responsibility for our impact and make changes for the better where we can. Let’s try to make our own impact a more positive one!
Curiosity is the best tool we have to learn more about the world around us. By asking questions we can continue to develop our understanding of the global issues. By staying curious we can discover new, alternative and better ways
By choosing to use products which have been made in an ethical way we can help to empower workers in supply chains around the world. It is so important to me to consider not just the appearance of a product but also the story behind it, what are the conditions is has been made in?
