Sustainability Checklist

Tue, 12 Apr by Pauline Relkey

Sustainability Checklistrecycle reduce reuse

What is sustainability?

Sustainability could be defined as an ability or capacity of something to be maintained or to sustain itself. It’s about taking what we need to live now, without jeopardizing the potential for people in the future to meet their needs. If an activity is said to be sustainable, it should be able to continue forever.

So how do we do that?

1. Recycle

– Set up bins according to materials your municipality accepts for recyclables.

– Don’t dispose of electronics in the garbage.

2. Save Water

– Take shorter showers to reduce water use.

– Mount a low-flow shower head.

– Install a faucet aerator on each faucet. These inexpensive appliances conserve heat and water while keeping water pressure high.

– Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden.

– Investigate the use of a water barrel. Some municipalities have programs to collect rain water.

3. Eat Smart

-Skip the bottled water, use reusable water bottles instead.

– Buy local.

4. Reduce Energy Usage

– Set thermostats a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs.

– Install compact fluorescents when old incandescent bulbs burn out.

– Unplug appliances when not in use to avoid using phantom power.

– Wash clothing in cold water whenever possible.

– Use a drying rack or clotheslines to save energy (I love that smell of clothing that dried on the outside clothesline).  clothesline

5. Reuse/Repurpose

– Repurpose items.

– Check online (kijiji, craigslist, etc), garage sales, thrift stores and consignment shops for gently used items.

Thanks to my friends at MCAP for providing these great hints.
