Sustainable living is on everybody’s lips, and if it isn’t, it should be.
But do we really need to consider making changes to our comfortable lives? Surely these extreme measures must be for all those hippies that chain themselves to trees in protest against whatever cause they read about in the latest “flower power” magazine…or is it?
“Green living” refers to a lifestyle that avoids depleting the earth’s natural resources by reducing the demand for water, energy, trees and fossil fuels. It means striving to create less waste and to prioritize the use of renewable resources, and off course, to minimize consumption. In short, it’s all about making healthier choices for our planet and the people who live here.
Living sustainably might seem a little intimidating at first, but it really isn’t that hard. For many the concept of “going green” may bring to mind thoughts of expensive solar heating systems and water tanks. Here’s the thing though; the best way to go about making a transition towards a greener way of life is to find a route that fits your lifestyle. Environmental experts believe that even small tweaks to everyday living can prevent further damage to the atmosphere.
“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed” – Mahatma Ghandi.
