Sustainable Life

Sustainable Life A place to share the most creative and effective ways of consuming and wasting less energy and resources for a more sustainable world.

Established and curated by Roland Marconi. It's within everyone's power to live and consume in more sustainable ways, to help protect our environment and share the world's resources in more just ways. Even if it's just for today or for one day per week, please think of creative ways to consume less and waste less. Start with focusing on one day per week and try changing a habitual way of consuming or generating waste. Walk or cycle, avoid disposable containers for food or drinks, turn off unnecessary electrical devices. Most of the world's crucial resources may be finite but the possibilities for innovation are endless.
