Sustainability, It’s not as spooky as it seems…

Sometimes the word Sustainability brings about visions of mass recycling centers, large under-takings, added time to your daily routine, and more. While many of us desire to live a greener lifestyle, preserve the planet, and add to a general sense of sustainable life, it can seem daunting at times.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Think of sustainability less as an immediate overhaul, and more as a process. Anyone from a large corporation to a college student in their dorm room can practice sustainability in small steps. It’s through all the small steps that the impact begins. When you make changes in the smallest details of your life or the way you conduct business, you are making an impact.

Let’s take the college student for a moment. According to Boston College, the average college student goes through about 320 pounds of paper, PER YEAR. Imagine the impact if that college student recycled all those rough drafts instead of using them in the ever popular waste basket basketball. Small steps, Big impact.

Large corporations don’t have to set out to turn the tide right away and completely change the culture of their company. Little incentives that encourage employee buy in for things like riding their bike to work, or using reusable water bottles all will begin to change the corporate culture and create the platform for larger sustainable change.

Small steps in sustainability
So as you ponder what types of small steps you can take in your sustainable journey, let’s look ahead to a mere two weeks from now to Halloween where we have everything from costumes to candy to decorations. Each one of the elements can be a part of your sustainable process. Instead of buying the costumes in the store, get creative! Assemble or make your own costumes from household items. The same goes for Decorations. Do-it-yourselfers everywhere have the ability to create beautiful decorations, and we all have Pinterest to thank for the inspiration.

As you can see, sustainability isn’t scary or daunting, it’s a process. Start small, and you will make an impact.
