Over-consumption is one of the major problems these days. The amount of waste, both from the products but also from all of the shipping and packaging, we make each year has become unsustainable.Sure, we can conveniently order things online and cure all the ills of our busy modern lives, but at what cost are we doing so? Could there be a better way? With the end of 2015 still fresh in our minds and fiscal measures, one of the largest global online retailers has published a list of top selling items last year. Amazingly, nearly half of the items are things we can easily make at home.While many people are hesitant to join the DIY crowd, leaving that to a “certain type,” the truth of the matter is that it’s important for everyone. Not only does it save us all money, but it automatically reduces the amount of waste that we produce by buying 10 different products that serve all different purposes. If that wasn’t enough of a draw to consider DIY-ing, all of the products on this list can be made in under 15 minutes!
