Decluttering: the way to a low impact life, with Shelina Jokhiya 

Guest

Shelina Jokhiya

Founder, DeCluttr Me Host, the DeCluttr Me podcast


A lot of people think of decluttering as merely cleaning up or getting rid of things but not many understand its link with living a low impact life. When someone else uses something we get rid of, it reduces their consumption and impact just as much as our own. And as we consume less, we need fewer cupboards, shelves, boxes and even smaller living spaces.

This week, we’re joined by Shelina Jokhiya, Founder of DeCluttr Me, the UAE’s first licensed professional decluttering service, and the Host of the DeCluttr Me podcast. We talked about basic decluttering concepts, how to deal with e-waste and the harmful impacts if this is not disposed properly as well as the more emotional downsides of clutter that we should all be aware of.
