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.
- Reduce your consumption
- Stop buying fast fashion
- Support local businesses
- Buy organic
- Buy less, buy better
- Make, mend, sew and share
- Learn about the issues you care about
- Reduce your waste
- Eat less dairy and meat
- Travel more lightly
- Offset your emissions
- Keep trying
There is no one big action, but your everyday smaller actions all add up to being more sustainable - often with surprising results.
