The New Living Standard
At a time when we carry computers in our pockets and our cars practically do the driving for us, a certain subset of people have willingly chosen to cut the cord on modern life for good. Off-the-grid living, that is using natural resources like sun and wind power to provide amenities like heat and electricity, has become more and more commonplace in our growing world. Living the minimalist life style is hard, especially when all that you have known is the ease of life. Working hard to get even your basic necessities, minimalist living challenges you to live without the complexities that tear us away from our friends, family, and the world around. It is about getting back and giving back to the world. Reducing waste and energy consumption.
