Here’s our definition of sustainable living: A system of living that maintains its own viability by seeking to optimize the use of naturally and locally available resources, often including reuse. It’s a lifestyle where families become producers rather than consumers only and that can go on unhindered without unnatural and non-local resources. Sustainable living requires stewardship of natural resources and habitats. (For a more detailed explanation of the how and why to live sustainably, click here.)
