portrait of Marjolyn, founder of The Slow Living Guide


Hello! I’m Marjolyn, founder of The Slow Living Guide, a directory and blog about slowing down and enjoying the simple things in life. I created this platform because I wanted to bring together those seeking and those offering inspiration, products, and services with a slow living ethos.

My personal journey led me to believe we need to redefine success in this fast-paced world. That we shouldn’t always strive for more, bigger, and faster, but instead make time for the things that really matter to us, simplify our homes and lives, choose eco-friendly options and be mindful if and where we spend our money. Thoughtfully designed products and services, sustainably made goods and personal connection are important to treasure and support in this age of fast living and mass-consumption.

A growing number of people is seeking to embrace a slower, more sustainable lifestyle and looking for inspiration and (small) brands that share their values. The Slow Living Guide is their go to place to get inspired and find brands with a slow living ethos.

Would you like to be part of The Slow Living Guide? Here are the options to work with me.
