How to Live a Sustainable Lifestyle?







There are many, many ways to do this, across every industry, every issue and everything you normally buy, use or throw away. 


You don’t have to make a massive shift with everything you do or buy all at once (and certainly don’t throw out good stuff for more ‘sustainable’ versions). To live a more sustainable life, it takes a lifestyle change rather than a crash diet style approach. 


Being more sustainable isn’t an easily achieved goal you can tick off and then move onto the next thing on your list - it’s a lifelong journey, of learning, experimenting, failing, starting again and sharing your adventure. 


The destination may be important for us all to aim for, but the journey - no matter how slow or fast, is the thing that counts. 


A ‘sustainable lifestyle’ can be broken down into many actions, but these are the top 12 areas you should be looking to work on and make changes in. 

  1. Reduce your consumption 
  2. Stop buying fast fashion 
  3. Support local businesses 
  4. Buy organic 
  5. Buy less, buy better 
  6. Make, mend, sew and share 
  7. Learn about the issues you care about 
  8. Reduce your waste 
  9. Eat less dairy and meat 
  10. Travel more lightly 
  11. Offset your emissions 
  12. Keep trying 

There is no one big action, but your everyday smaller actions all add up to being more sustainable - often with surprising results.
