How are you enjoying the show so far? This was our last fortnightly show, as we’ll be coming to you weekly from the first Monday in October – VERY exciting!
This week I chat to the lovely Tara Button, ex ad exec turned conscious consumer advocate with her pioneering business “Buy Me Once”. Buy Me Once calls on people to focus on investing in items that will last a life time, as opposed to engaging in the current cycle of getting good, cheap deals and constantly buying lesser quality items. We talk about some of the tricks employed by advertisers to get us hooked on things we don’t need as well as about the inception of Buy Me Once and her hopes for what it will bring to people. Launched currently in the USA and the UK and soon to also be in Australia and Canada she sure is a woman on a mission to spread the “buy less, buy better” love. Enjoy the show and don’t miss your amazing partner offer from Weleda Australia (Australian residents only).
One of my favourite little moments was when Tara shared her “I don’t need” list – a list she uses to stay strong in the face of the things she’s most likely to cave on in the face of good marketing or a pretty window display. It sparked an impromptu challenge for you guys to share your lists too!
Will you join in the little challenge from this week’s show and share your “I don’t need” list on social media this week? There will be a prize for the winner: And no it’s not ‘stuff’, but it’s that YOU will get to choose the topic of a future show. Any sustainability focused / low tox topic you fancy!
Hashtag #lowtoxlife or tag @lowtoxlife with your list on instagram to go in the running.

Thanks again for taking the time to rate and review the show – it’s like tipping the bartender and it means the world. (To do this from your phone, you can’t be ‘in the show’. Go to the podcast search function and type low tox life, and then click on the show and click ‘review’. Annoyingly tricky but hey. I figured I may as well help you out!)
