Living more sustainably, whether it be at home, while travelling, or at work, has a whole range of obvious benefits for the environment.
There are also a range of personal benefits, such as; saving money through lower energy bills; improved health through being active; making greater connections with your community; and, growing your knowledge and skills. There is also the personal satisfaction and sense of achievement that comes from doing the right thing, working for a common good and inspiring others.
Broader benefits include a cleaner and safer environment that provide attractive neighbourhoods, accessible transport options, and more time that we can share with our family and friends. It is benefits such as these that help provide an improved quality of life.
