Sustainable living focuses on choices and behaviours that centre on living within our means to encourage human and environmental health.
Sustainable development was first defined by the Brundtland Report in 1987. He aimed to present environment-related issues and challenges in the context of political, social, and economic development.
Today, the principles of sustainability are emphasised by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which want to preserve the planet for future generations.
The shift towards sustainability in our homes, communities, and lifestyles looks different for everyone.
Individual actions can lessen our impact on the planet as they are part of the collective movement. Living a sustainable lifestyle can benefit our household, the community, economy and environment.
It is important to note that the onus is not exclusively on the individual. Corporate and state-producing entities also need to address the planet's environmental issues.
We're consuming resources at an unsustainable rate.
A great place to start reducing our waste is learning how to recycle.
Finding new and sustainable ways to produce, reuse, create, and substitute products and services that you would otherwise purchase encourages self-sufficiency while lessening the environmental impact.
When it comes to material things, shop less and with purpose rather than impulse.
When you choose to take public transportation, car-pool, walk, or bike as a means of transportation, you are effectively offsetting your daily carbon emissions.
Re-evaluate your investment portfolio and consider divesting from funds and stocks connected to environmental destruction.
The core beliefs of sustainable living go beyond our homes and communities.
