Sustainable Choices


Sustainability: The ability to provide for the needs of the world's current population without damaging the ability of future generations to provide for themselves. When a process is sustainable, it can be carried out over and over without negative environmental effects or impossibly high costs to anyone involved (for further discussion, please see Sustainability 101).

Mission: Small choices we make every day affect the health of the planet we share. The Sustainable Choices Web site provides information you can use to make small changes that will have a major positive impact on our environment.
