During holiday season, it can be easy to be unsustainable as there are lots of gifts exchanged and lights on for decoration, but here are some tips to be more sustainable.
Sustainability is a very broad term, one with many definitions. The United Nations defines sustainable development as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (United Nations). That definition can be extended to sustainability in general to mean what is done will meet the needs of the present and not compromise the ability for people in the future to meet their own needs.
Here’s a brief list of some topics I will cover in the future:
- The 3 pillars (environmental, economical, social)
- Green Revolving Funds
- Daily sustainability actions
- College sustainability actions
- Sustainability across the world
- Climate change
- Food waste
