While decluttering is typically thought of as an otherwise dull task, Marie Kondo has turned it into more than just a mundane household chore. Her “KonMari” method is taking the world by storm, as she teaches the masses how to live a minimalist lifestyle. The concept is simple really— if you look at an item and it does not spark joy, then it is time to part ways. Watching this phenomenon, environmentalists began to wonder if Marie Kondo could kickstart greater environmental change. If Marie Kondo helps hoarders to part with unnecessary items, then maybe we can use these tools to entice the billions of people on the planet to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
