Family of four. Finnish mother, Romanian father and 2 daughters. First girl was born in Amsterdam, second in Helsinki. Kids speak finnish and romanian, parents english and finnish together.
Recycle and re-use has become way of life after years in Amsterdam. There we found all the second-hand shops and flea-markets.
Here in Finland we visit regulary "Kierrätyskeskus"= recycle-center. The best around Helsinki area is in-my-opinion in Matinkylä. So do not bin anything useful because they are happy to come and pick up your waste furniture, clothes and all the rest of the stuff you want to get rid of.
