Sustainability is a complex and contested concept, but at its essence represents the hope for a healthy, just and bright future for us all. We offer Choices for Sustainable Living as an opportunity to move beyond the hype to explore sustainability more deeply. The course focuses less on defining sustainability than envisioning sustainability – what would a sustainable world look like? And how can we create it together?

Each category below is mapped to each session in your book, and contains actions for putting your knowledge into practice.

    A few weeks ago my daughter and I went to a River Clean Up Day that my town sponsors. She got credit towards earning a Girl Scout patch, and we both had our eyes opened to the amount of (mostly plastic) waste that the river had left behind. The river has a rather wide flood plain, so we had our work cut out for us!

    I have completely STOPPED using straws of any kind.  Completely unnecessary.   Amazing how many straws I turn down in just a day.  The only time I think I might miss a straw is if I ever get a fountain pop from a drive-thru while on the road.
