Live Lagom: Living Lagom with Luke

You don't have to make dramatic changes to improve the wellbeing of yourself, the quality of your life, and ultimately, your world. As Luke found out, the little things can have a big impact too.

    What does Lagom mean? Lagom comes from the Swedish phrase “Lagom är bäst” (the right amount is best), which we believe is the secret to sustainable living.

    A more sustainable life at home should be easy. It should make everyday life better and your home more beautiful. And it should be affordable enough so that we can all start right away. We know it’s possible and we want to prove it. That’s what the Live Lagom community is all about.

    "Our aim was to stop thinking we live in a small house with a garden and appreciate and utilise what we have. Before, the house was just somewhere we ate and slept. Now it feels more of a home."

    "We were 'doing our bit', but we wanted to do more. We wanted to teach our son Grey new sustainability habits that will help him for his future."

      "The Lagom project has brought our family closer together as we now have a common goal we all strive towards."

          Bright Idea

          It's easy to save power with 3-way or 4-way socket. Plug in several appliances and turn them all off at the touch of a button, so no energy is wasted in standby mode.
