What is Sustainability?

Sustainability…the buzz word of 2006 that’s still buzzing. What is this term that’s come to define everything from reducing water usage to increasing business profit?

 

Look up the word sustainability online, and the descriptions that appear include jargon, hackneyed, misused, overused, and well…I think you get the picture.

For the purpose of defining a term that’s not so vague, let’s talk about environmental sustainability and the general principles behind it.

 

At Midwest Fiber, we believe the best definitions of environmental sustainability include:

 

  • Meeting present needs without compromising the ability to meet future needs.
  • Being environmentally responsible, keeping in mind the long-term effects our actions might have on our future environment.
  • Treating your environment and its natural resources much like you would your living room and your personal bank account.

In other words, it means being a good steward of the resources that we’re given.

By recycling, people make environmental sustainability part of their lifestyle…getting the most good out of each recyclable item.

Remember, environmental sustainability isn’t just our business…it’s everybody’s business.

Brutal wars over natural resources, including timber and minerals, have killed or displaced more than 20 million people and are raising at least $12 billion a year for rebels, warlords, and repressive governments. Recycling eases the demand for the resources.
