Sustainable living is to lead a lifestyle in tune with the symbiotic nature of life and the Earth. Those who practice it, use the natural principles of ecology to live in the environment without removing or changing anything that cannot be replaced. They adapt more general tenets of sustainability to personal lifestyle choices such as health, simplicity, thinking, evolution to themselves and are the most important. Developing towards larger society living in harmony with mother earth, we need her but she doesn’t need us, for continued mutual survival.

Jai, if this lifestyle were to be implemented via a set of 'step or suggestions' what would you recommend, based on your experience and knowledge.

Thanks Daniel, sustainable living is to lead a lifestyle in tune with the symbiotic nature of life and the Earth. Many who practice it have formed communities and neighbourhoods of like minded people who support each other. They implement voluntary simplicity into their lives and are no longer consumers. That grow their own organic fruit and vegetables. This is good as perfect health longevity is achievable by dealing with obesity. Learn about climate change and don’t pollute by using renewable energy. More details category ‘Green living’ on my website. http://fleurcom.org/blog/
