CAN: Act Sustainably

Lifestyle Choices

Living sustainable means we are making conscious choices about what we eat, what we buy, and what we choose to put into the waste stream. Thinking sustainably means that we think about all the resources needed to create, package, transport and dispose of an item, and then we, as consumers, choose items that use fewer resources and will not create waste. Ideally, we have a circular process where there is no waste. When something is no longer needed or useful it is then used again as raw material for something else. Nothing is discarded to be never used or useful again.

That is the ideal, but we are a long way off from that perfect state. In this section you will find some things you can do today to put the brakes on our wasteful (and carbon/water intensive) lifestyles.

Our future depends upon the choices we make today.
