What is sustainability?
So you’ve heard of being eco-friendly & environmentally conscious but being “sustainable” doesn’t necessarily ring a bell. Well, at its core, sustainability is all about the persistence of quality & maintenance. It’s about taking steps to avoid depleting your resources. Things like recycling, composting, eating & shopping local are all considered sustainable because they help us use less.
When you buy locally you cut down on the use of fossil fuels and other shipping resources. When you recycle you take an item that would needlessly rot in a landfill and give it a new purpose. All of these things are at the core of sustainability and being environmentally friendly or “eco-conscious”.
