Why live sustainably?

Living sustainably reduces your costs. You will find your life is still comfortable but more fulfilling. It changes your perspective on life.  It gives you new skills.  You feel less dependent on money.  It is very freeing.

How do I start?

Changing the way you live is a journey. To start you take a step.  Just one step and before you know it you are well on your way.

It doesn’t matter which step you start with.  Some people start because they want to feel healthier. Some start because they need to reduce their costs.  Others want to do their bit to reduce their impact on the planet. 

You might like to start with something easy that will give you quick results.  Like switching your most often used lights to LED bulbs. Others prefer to plan something significant like the installation of solar panels. 

The main thing is to decide you will live more sustainably and start.
