Life Edited: Graham Hill’s Design Contest Promotes Happiness By Living With Less
Treehugger's founder launches the design competition, "Life Edited" to encourage more people to live with less.
Is it possible to reduce our environmental footprint, save money, and lead a freer, less cluttered life? According to Treehugger founder, Graham Hill, the answer is a resounding yes! With the average home size in the United States doubling in the past century and happiness levels remaining flat, Hill believes it is possible to be happier by reducing the size of our homes, cars, and belongings. Hill explains his personal mantra:
We really have a culture of excess. We have excess, we’re not any happier and what you’ll see again and again are people who really cut back and really edit their lives will find themselves much happier. They have more mental clarity. They end up having more time and it’s often better financially.
