We started out by making a budget, something that has benefitted us immensely since then. We planned our trip with solely financial considerations and later analyzed it from a sustainable perspective. We came to the realization that vacations like ours impact our society and our environment in ways we couldn't imagine and learned how we in the future could avoid the worst negative effects while maximizing the positive ones. Lastly, we bought furniture for the house we inherited in addition to some jeans and could compare their effects on sustainability while doing so.
In the future we are going to keep on saving for our dream house, we are also going to think about our actions more often. And sicne we have an extra income from the apartment we got from Svens grandmother we can eat out more often. Our goal about fulfilling our dreams are going pretty well at the time, and hopefully it will go on the same way.
The skills and knowledge that we have developed, to set up a budget and to consider a purchase from several perspectives, will surely prove helpful for the rest of our lives and we hope it will serve you as well.
We also want to give you some tips you could use next you are going to buy something or make an important decision. First of all we think you could think about how your purchase or decision will affect the enviroment and the society before making it. Second of all it's good if you look after eco certifications when you shop for food because the food we shop are usually not good for us or the enviroment. For example meat, try to consume less meat since it affects the global warming pretty much causing methane emissons. I know that it sometimes may be hard, but all of our choices matter in many ways.
