Mark Powley founded Breathe, a Christian network that encourages and resources simpler living. Mark is all about simple living and resisting the lure of our consumer culture (or as Breathe puts it, ‘less stuff, more life’), so we talk to Mark about how we can go about a Consumer Detox. Prepare to be challenged!

Consumer Detox: Less Stuff, More Life


“Consumer culture isolates and fragments us into individual consuming units. It means we’re less faithful to one another; we’re less linked with institutions, with communities.”

“If we wondered more at the things we do have, we will want less of the things we don’t have. And I would hope that makes us more attractive as people – that we just have this sense of inquisitiveness, wonder, thankfulness.”
