What does sustainability really mean?

Put simply, sustainability is about using the world’s resources today in a way that maintains their supplies for the future. In practice this means doing things that will lessen our impact on the environment – like reducing the amount of water and energy we use, eating locally and growing our own produce, relying less on cars and changing the way we purchase and use items.

How can I be more sustainable?

First things first, you need to ditch those disposables and invest in more durable and ethically produced products – like bamboo toothbrushes and reusable water bottles. When you do decide to get rid of things you can recycle or resell them, or donate them to someone in need. It’s all about reducing the amount of waste and pollution you create and helping others to do the same. It’s also about being more aware of the impact you have on the world, as well as knowing where your food and products came from.
