How African American history has shaped our consumerism habits with Christine Platt, Afrominimalist

Updated: Jun 10

To be more sustainable, we often strive to reduce the amount of waste that we are creating and bringing into our homes. In this episode, we’re talking with The Afrominimalist about how minimalism relates to sustainability, how to get rid of things that no longer serve you, and how African American history and how has shaped our beliefs about consumerism.

Today's featured sustainable Brown Girl is Christine Platt, author of The Afrominimalist's Guide to Living with Less, a radical re-envisioning of minimalism that focuses on authenticity over aesthetics. Christine's book is a resource for anyone seeking to discover the truth behind their overconsumption as well as how to let go of what no longer serves them.
