Sustainability...what exactly is it?
Upon beginning this blogging adventure, I had to think about the big question "What is sustainability?" and come up with a reasonable answer which would set the tone for all future musings. See, my idea is to have a place to encourage others with words, recipes for wholesome and organic food, gardening tips, ways to clean and organize life… generally a place to nourish the body, soul, and spirit.
Starting with a very unoriginal source, I consulted Dictionary.com:
1. the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed.
2.Environmental Science . the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance: The committee is developing sustainability standards for products that use energy.
