What is Sustainability?

The phrase “sustainable living” is constantly being bandied around. But what does it actually mean.  In it’s simplest form it’s a philosophy that aims to reduce our negative social and environmental impacts by making positive changes in our lives to counteract climate change and other environmental issues.

Sustainable living encourages people to minimise their use of Earth’s resources and reduce the damage of human and environmental interactions. This fits neatly with the concept of the Zero Waste circular economy.

One way to measure the impact of the positive changes you make is to measure and track your carbon footprint.  There are lots of carbon footprint calculators available but one of my favourites is the WWF Footprint Calculator.
