‘SimpleSunflower’ is dedicated to providing practical tips to making simple living – ‘simple’.

Many advocates will tell you of the benefits of simple living for ourselves, for others, and for the world around them.  Usually however, they’ll also tell you how hard it can be.  SimpleSunflower aims to change this through providing practical, easy to follow advice on a wide range of simple living subjects.

SimpleSunflower was founded by Dr. Simon Ussher – a medical specialist who is a passionate advocate of the benefits of simple living, both at an individual level and globally.  He is also the co-founder of the Simplicity Institute – an organisation dedicated to advancing the simple living/voluntary simplicity movement.
