EarthNews Radio: Incorporating Sustainability
How can we actually incorporate sustainability in our personal lives?
Jerry Kay spoke to Andrés Edward, founder of EduTracks and author of The Sustainability Revolution:
Edward says that incorporating sustainability into your everyday life isn't as difficult as you think, though many people ask him how it can be done given the reality that many people are just trying to get through everyday life.
You can do basic things like changing incandescent lights into fluorescent lights; some organizations give away those bulbs. You could build your deck with wood approved by the Forest Stewardship Council, or drive a hybrid car. Even some non-hybrids get very good gas mileage.
As these products become more mainstream, information about them becomes more easy to find, according to Edwards.
