Live lagom

The Swedish word Lagom means just the right amount is best. We love it because it’s what living a rewarding but responsible life is all about: not denying yourself or sacrificing what you love, while not taking from the planet more than you need. We all can do better when it comes to living LAGOM/sustainably (saving more, wasting less, growing your own food and living an active lifestyle).
