Sustainability is a mindset. Applicable in every moment at every level of life and society. It’s how I chew my food, and how to breathe when I type. It’s the compost system, the car I’d prefer to drive and the place I choose to work. It’s also the core principle in solving the climate crisis as well as economic stability, again at every level.
Capitalism is powerful, yet it has two edges. On the one hand we have become wealthy and able beyond reckoning, but at what expense and at what danger in continuing? The data is out, the scientists have filed their reports. We have to learn to live within our means in every aspect of our collective lives. Sustainability can be practiced in every moment in every sphere, and often the first and biggest step is as simple as taking a deep breath.
