We want to fit in, we want people to like us, we want more stuff.
Are we sustainable?
“Sustainability is a word without a clearcut meaning. It means different things to different people. It can’t be reduced to one single meaning.
“And I think that is exactly why the word is so powerful. It inspires us to imagine better ways of living our lives, organizing our societies, and relating to the environment. To me, sustainability means living within your local ecosystem, coevolving with the other plants, animals, insects, fungi, and bacteria, in a way that perpetuates the functioning of the whole biotic system.
