According to the United Nations, the world’s population may reach 10 billion by 2050.

The demand for food, fashion, travel, housing and related aspirations will rise in tandem. Our lifestyle decisions are stretching the earth’s resources while exacerbating the threat of global biodiversity loss and climate change.

Driving awareness and adoption of sustainable lifestyles are part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), 6 (Clean Water & Sanitation), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).


Sustainable living means understanding how our lifestyle choices impact the world around us. It is the practice of reducing our demand for natural resources by ensuring that we replace what we use to the best of our ability. Sometimes that can mean not choosing to consume a product that is made using practices that don’t promote sustainability, and sometimes it means changing how we do things so that we start becoming more of an active part of the cycle of life.

We all are responsible for looking for ways to live better while minimising our environmental footprints.
