Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet.

Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity’s symbiotic relationship with the Earth’s natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development.

Lester R. Brown, a prominent environmentalist and founder of the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute, describes sustainable living in the twenty-first century as “shifting to a renewable energy–based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system.” In addition to this philosophy, practical eco-village builders like Living Villages maintain that the shift to renewable technologies will only be successful if the resultant built environment is attractive to a local culture and can be maintained and adapted as necessary over the generations.

Mind you, if I had to live somewhere off-grid, having it chock full of under 30 year old females would be my first choice !
Way to promote sustainable living !
And that was oh, so very tongue in cheek, in case I have to explain.
Sexism, that’s what you’re doing.

    Sue Chard we need pro-active peaceful revolution or the swamp monsters will drown us in their greed. We can’t hide in a cave and pretend all is flowers and beads. We all need to stand up and protest how extreme capitalism is ruining the electorate, no one can afford to live anymore, where are you going to hide?
    We cannot stick our heads in the sand while immigrants, people of colour and women are being abased by the new Nazis. You’re advocating what the German people did in 1933, just go with the flow and it’ll all be okay? This is real.
