In today’s day and age, living sustainably is essential to the longevity of the planet. But what is sustainability and what does a sustainable life actually entail?
Put simply, living sustainably means undertaking eco-friendly practices, limiting our waste output and avoiding products and practices that aid in the depletion of our natural resources.
In order to maintain the health of our planet for future generations, we all must choose to live a more eco-friendly existence and change our current way of thinking. There are three key areas of sustainability that need to be addressed — social, environmental and economic.
Social sustainability refers to a community or corporation developing processes, structures and frameworks that meet the needs of both current and future members. The aim of this is to create happy, healthy and liveable communities that provide a good quality of life for the members.
Environmental sustainability is critical to the future of generations to come. In order to be environmentally sustainable, there are three key factors that should be addressed.
Economic sustainability is the ability of an economy to support growth indefinitely. This can be challenged by factors like population growth.
A lot of the most damaging practices are driven by greed and ignorance. Deforestation, pollution, landfill, mining and manufacturing can be extremely harmful and have a devastating effect on the earth’s ability to regenerate itself.
Industries and individuals need to take responsibility for the practices they support and start making smarter choices, otherwise our children and our children’s children will be living on a very different planet to what we know now.
Here at Cake, we’re aware and conscious of our environmental impact, not only as a business but personally as the individuals who run it. Because of this, we approach all aspects of our business holistically to ensure we have as little impact on the planet as possible.
We understand that this is an ever-evolving space, with new findings coming to light every day. So, we want you to know that we’re committed to doing our bit for the environment and will continue to keep improving our practices to ensure the wellbeing of Mother Nature.
While all of our styles are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 compliant, there’s a few key pieces that we feel really represent our sustainable ethos.
