Open any magazine or newspaper and you’ll find a variety of articles regarding green living. Although we’ve always been able to lead this sustainable way of life, the recent attention toward going green has many families rethinking their existence. In an effort to reduce their carbon footprint, families are beginning to take more responsibility over their lifestyles, making a conscious effort to pre-cycle, recycle and ultimately lower carbon emissions. You don’t need a psychology degree to see that even a few small changes can make a difference, which is why so many individuals are eager to share their stories. They hope to inspire others to make the same changes and create a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle that will benefit the planet.
While the human race is making great strides, there’s one concern that experts have: Do we as humans recognize that living sustainably is more than just a lifestyle; it’s what we need to do to be humane? Many people consider being green as the trendy way to live, fitting in with today’s changing standards. Not only are individuals happy to reveal how they’re going green, but businesses also use this image to build up clientele and stand ahead of the competition. Although making eco-friendly changes is vital, it’s more important to know why we need to make them. The more we enjoy this sustainable lifestyle, the more we’ll be willing to stick to it.
Sustainability is the capacity to endure. Sustainability is a product of both the environment and the human race. For example, the wetlands and forests are sustainable biological systems. The long-term maintenance of our well-being is sustainability to humans. This means that in order to achieve sustainability, the planet and humanity need to have a mutually rewarding relationship. After all, we cannot survive without the Earth and the Earth will not survive without living things.
The history of the world is based on sustainability, as those who were successful lived on, while the rest declined. Furthermore, sustainability is not static, as our landscape is always evolving. Things that affect the planet’s sustainability include its inhabitants, as well as their occupations, lifestyles and behaviors. With these factors in mind, one can see just how pertinent the way we live is to the total welfare of our planet and humanity.
