We wanted to see if we could live without being fully fledged consumers and putting things into landfill,” Shipp says. There are sound economic principles behind this approach, too. “We call it grand living on the cheap. Some of our stuff is amazing, but it would be too expensive to buy new.” Their daughters (6 & 10) echoes this philosophy as they are fanatical about “living elegantly with minimal environmental impact.” {Guardian Weekend}
