What is living sustainably?

Living sustainably is about choices and behaviours, both big and small, that enhance our lives, care for our environment and encourage us to live within our means.

Sustainability also drives creativity and innovation, and the challenge to find new and exciting technologies and solutions to tackle issues and facilitating social change.

Why live sustainably?

Making choices to live sustainably is an opportunity to:

  • learn about your environment
  • stay up-to-date with developments in technology
  • save money and precious finite resources
  • connect with others who are passionate about protecting our natural resources, oceans, wildlife and future generations.

Living sustainably will give back far more than the effort you put in. The Earth and future generations will thank you!
