Sustainability offers us a solution to our destructive consumerist behaviour. It will ensure our continued existence without ruining the chances of our children. It gives us the chance to thrive and live well on a planet with finite resources. We know that we are facing more environmental problems than ever before, and with a swelling global population, alternative ways of living must be considered. In Dorset there are already many people and communities living more sustainably. There is a rise in the number of people growing their own vegetables or working on a community-growing project. People are considering how they can cut their own carbon emissions and reduce dependency on travelling by car. There are a number of community energy projects and many individuals have already made the switch to renewable energy. Changes to diet like eating less meat and buying locally sourced food all contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. This more sustainable, inclusive and local way of living supports personal health and well-being and a higher quality of life and moves us towards a more resilient circular economy where one person’s waste feeds another’s resource. An economy where there is no waste.
