The BetterWorld Book
Do One Thing for a better world ... Together we make a world of difference

14. Living Sustainably

"... if our humanity - our soul as a society - is overtaken by the materiel and cosmetic, there will be no hope of peace."
-- Robert Redford

Once we've made a commitment to try to make our lives and our relationships more peaceful, we can start to look at other daily choices we make. Is there anything we can do in our daily routines that will help us to create a better world?

In order to have a better world lifestyle, our lives have to be sustainable - we have to find a balance. Are we caught in the cycle of not spending time with our families because we are working too hard to get more things than we really need?

Are the things that we buy made by people who work in safe conditions and are paid a living wage? Were they made in ways that didn't harm the environment or won't harm it when we're done with them?

There are many things that we can do with our investments and our purchases that will help change the system rather than reinforcing it. We can invest our money in socially responsible banks and funds. We can make a conscious effort to buy products made by businesses that respect the environment and treat their employees fairly. We can use our spending money to purchase renewable energy products to heat our homes and travel to work.

Our goal is to create a world where citizens, communities, corporations and nations work together in a responsible way. Where decisions are not based on how much things cost or how much profit can be made, but on the value that it adds to the lives of our citizens and employees, and its impact on the environment. This sustainable life begins when we make our own lives more sustainable.
