A Quick Guide to Sustainability and Why It's So Important
What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is the practice of living within the carrying capacity of Earth's natural resources, especially by not consuming more than what the environment can provide. It is a concept that has been around for many years and continues to grow in importance as people continue to consume and pollute at unsustainable rates.
The idea of sustainability is often associated with environmentalism, but it also includes economic development, fair trade, social justice and peace.

Humans have been in the process of changing the environment for centuries. The effects of this are now being seen on a global scale. This is a major problem that has to be dealt with before it becomes irreversible.
One of the most significant changes in human history is the Industrial Revolution and its effects on the environment. It occurred from 1760 to 1840 and was responsible for many changes in our environment, such as increased pollution and deforestation, among others.
How We Can All Work to Create a Sustainable Future
In order to create a sustainable future, we need to work together. And in order for us to work together, we need to understand each other. We need to be able to see what the other person is doing and why they are doing it.
