What Goes Up Must Come Down: Sustainable Solutions for Modern Life

Sustainability has been the trend for the past several years, and it has been a buzzword in numerous industries such as fashion and cosmetics. Ethical company practices, zero waste lifestyles, fast fashion-these have been slowly integrated into our daily conversations about everyday issues that affect us.

The idea of sustainabilityis to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the successor. An example of this is having sustainable practices to create a positive impact on the environment.

All About Global Warming

We are already experiencing theeffects of global warming, yet some remain oblivious to the detrimental effects of unsustainable practices and habits. In 2020, we have seen the effects of climate change all over the world. Wildfires spread across Australia and California, among many. Major droughts have destroyed agricultural produce in Zimbabwe and Madagascar. The extreme weather of last year should be enough to signify the detrimental impact of our carbon footprint on the environment.

Big corporations that greatly contribute to landfills and marine pollution should be held accountable for their actions. Nevertheless, as individuals, there are steps we could take to help alleviate the effects of global warming.

A Gradual Shift

Living a sustainable lifestyle is not for everyone, but it should be. There are still limited resources to maintain a sustainable lifestyle, and some communities may have limited funds to completely eliminate certain habits. For example, living a zero-waste lifestyle might be difficult for those who can’t afford to buy goods in bulk instead of small increments such as sachets. Nevertheless, findways to be sustainablethat are within your means.

You can gradually shift to a sustainable lifestyle by limiting your household waste. Conserve water and energy by switching to better household appliances such as a water-saving shower or having LED bulbs.

Educate yourself and others about striving for a sustainable lifestyle. Be an advocate for sustainable change in every way you can. Be mindful of your choices as much as you can. Modern life is busy, and we can easily get distracted by other life goals, but we can always get back to advocating for sustainable changes. Learning about sustainability and fixing our mistakes is not a linear journey so forgive yourself for shortcomings. We are all learning about the world, after all.
