What Is Sustainable Living and Why Is It Good for Everyone?

Sustainable living is a lifestyle that aims to see the individual or community use natural resources in a sustainable way, and to avoid using toxic products and putting toxic chemicals into the environment. Adherents of this practice try to reduce their carbon footprint by using alternative methods of transportation, conscious consuming, and diet.

The history of this movement can be traced back to 1954, when Helen and Scott Nearing published the book Living the Good Life, marking the beginning of the modern day sustainable living.

Since then, the concept of sustainable living has become exponentially popular. If you consider living a way that will maintain your health and the health of your environment, you are one step closer to a sustainable life.

Watch this video for what sustainable living is, and why it’s good for everyone.
