Being sustainable is not only about caring for the planet, but understanding the importance of maximizing resources. You are going to have so many times where sustainable acts can be committed, and that is what you have to look for as a person.
Why would you want to take actions that are not going to help the planet? This is your home, and that is why you have to be careful about what you are doing and how you are doing it.
I have seen a lot of people who don’t understand the power of sustainability and that is the reason they are not doing enough. I would say the power comes from the fact you are not only helping the planet, but you are doing it in a manner where you see benefits as well. We met a guy whose website sells window shutters, and his whole philosophy is to give back by providing quality, eco-friendly products.
You want to remain sustainable just by doing the little things if that is all you can do. Look to recycle and do the little things that are going to make a difference. When you start to increase the things you are doing, this is when your mindset is going to change for the better.
You have to think about this as much as you can.
