Sustainability to us is a way of living or doing things that respects other life, does not deplete the earth’s natural resources, and can be replicated by everyone. In other words, it’s a way of life that can be maintained into the infinite future. If a practice or technique meets those criteria, we call it a sustainable solution.

Sustainability concerns every aspect of our daily lives. In the way we produce and eat food, the way we generate electricity, the way we travel, the way we build houses, the way we create and spend money, the way we view and treat the natural world, even the way we relate to our fellow human beings. Our nine themes cover these different aspects and you can find each sustainable solution listed under its main theme.
