Why do you think sustainability is important and the consumers should be educated about it?
“Because we do not have a planet B!” said Eleonora with emphasis. And people must realise their role as caretakers of a planet they share with 7.5 billion people. That means sustainability is about fulfilling all needs of the present without compromising on future generations’ needs for living. By availing opportunities to reduce pollution, consume high quality and nutrient-dense foods, protect plants and animals, planting trees as carbon sinks and to increase biodiversity are just a few examples.
Do you have any sustainable lifestyle tips for our readers?
People who have recently become invested in adopting sustainable lifestyles, reach out to me with bundles of questions about how I pursue a sustainable lifestyle, and my tip is, just start, somewhere. Patiently change your lifestyle step by step. One is better than zero, and then from one to two the jump is not that long. Every effort, every result you get matters. Above all;
Reuse, refurbish, recycle, upcycle, make your own, and always think that a product has a life that starts way before you buy it and ends way after you get rid of it. Once you are conscious of this, your mindset towards shopping will change.
