What is Sustainability?

The actual definition is:  “Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality.  Sustainability presumes that resources are finite, and should be used conservatively and wisely with a view to long-term priorities and consequences of the ways in which resources are used.   A resource is sustainable if it is renewable and can be replenished at a rate equal to or surpassing its consumption. 

The effects of climate change are becoming clearer, and many companies and individuals are invested in reducing their harm to our environment for a more sustainable future.  When facing a new purchase or a remodel, many consumers are drawn to eco-friendly, sustainable homes to both lower their impact on the environment and reduce monthly bills.

Every element essential to our daily lives, from wood and metals to plastics and fabrics, comes from nature.  The materials used to build our homes, the energy that powers them, and the items we fill them with are all products of the natural world. 

So, features such as xeriscape yards, greywater systems, solar panels, double-paned windows, and Energy Star appliances contribute to creating more environmentally conscious living spaces.  Additionally, small changes like using LED lightbulbs, timed sprinklers, and proper insulation improve sustainability and save homeowners money.

We all can do our part to use natural resources responsibly so that future generations can enjoy a similar or even more beautiful way of living!
