The earth is our home, it is the place where humanity was born and has been sustained by it ever since. Rich with renewable resources, the earth had bourn the burden of the increase in the usage od said resources. But as we advance as a species, we have reached a point where we are consuming these resources faster than they can be replaced. This had led to events of mass extinction and a huge shift in the global ecosystem resulting in problems such as climate change. Such a rapidly shifting climate has been unprecedented in human history and calls for immediate action, lest we go beyond the point of no return.
One way to achieve this is to forego our dependency on fossil fuels and look towards more sustainable ways of existing. This is where Dave Wann’s blog about how to lead a sustainable life comes in handy. Sustainable living has been gaining ground as humanity is starting to realize the consequences of how they have been living so far.
Sustainable living means living in a way which uses the least amount of earth resources while also making sure that you use biodegradable materials. In this type of lifestyle, one tries their best to reduce the strain they put on the earth to the best of their abilities. It also deals with trying to reduce one’s carbon footprint.
We are very close to the point of no return and if we do not change the way we live, the earth will soon be depleted of its resources and we will no longer have anything to sustain us. Adopting a sustainable lifestyle is a way for the individual to make a difference.
