Sustainability is about looking after the environment and people. It is about using resources carefully to ensure that all people, now and for generations to come, are able to have a high quality of life. Our economy, social well-being and environment are interdependent and progress in one area must not compromise progress in another.
Creating a greener lifestyle is a process of learning and experimenting with new approaches to find ways to make things better for all of us.
