The hippie nouveau lifestyle is about valuing our possessions. Whether they are expensive and exclusive, or commonly cheap, they are thoroughly appreciated with gratitude. Because experience is far more important to us than possessions, we keep materialism to a minimum. That’s why we treasure what we do have. If we don’t love it, need it, or use it, we recycle it or donate it.
