One of the biggest takeaways I got from this book is that both ideals, minimalism and veganism, look toward the same goal: being conscious of exploitative and wasteful practices, in order to protect our health, the environment and all lives (human and non-human) affected by unrestrained consumerism.
As a vegan and animal rights advocate, I was already aware of most of the information provided in the chapters on veganism. If you are not vegan and don't fully understand why someone would choose to stop consuming animal products, then those chapters are essential reading.
For me, though, the chapters I benefited from the most were the ones about minimalism, as this is a topic that I have only recently started to delve into. I found the authors' argument that "more doesn't mean better" very compelling.
As someone who meditates regularly and aims to live mindfully in the present moment, I was intrigued to read that mindfulness is the underlying theme that links the two concepts of minimalism and veganism together: being mindful of what you consume, whether food or luxury products. This really resonated with me.
I found the book inspiring and would recommend it to anyone curious about veganism or minimalism.
Easy read-through and really inspiring to adapt a more minimalistic lifestyle (breaking out of the 'the more the better'-thinking).
As a vegan, I was mostly aware of the facts given in the veganism chapter, but I never thought about how closely these two topics are related.
I really appreciate the many practical tips to start a more minimalistic approach.
