SMALL STEPS, GREAT STRIDES

Joined Up Living is what life is all about.  It’s down-to-earth, eco living the easy way. It’s small changes that make big differences. It’s seeing the links – how the way we live affects us all. It’s joining the dots in our daily lives and it’s just simple common sense.

If we were wide awake, we’d all see that living on a small planet means our lives and lifestyles are interconnected. We’re part of, not apart from, nature and the world we live in.

Imagine you were living on an island you couldn’t leave – wouldn’t you think twice about how you used the local resources, where you dumped your waste, how you looked after the land so it sustained you and your family, and the other people and creatures who shared the island?

Okay the Earth is bigger, but it’s an island of sorts. We can’t pretend there are another couple of planets we can plunder when we run out of ‘stuff’ on ours. Neither can we rely on our leaders or magic superheroes to come and sort everything out.

It’s time to open our eyes. If we want a happy, viable future for us, our children and our children’s children, it’s down to us. We ordinary folk. We are the people who hold the keys. We are the people we’re waiting for.

Living sustainably is  about ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs’.

We call it ‘joined up living’. It’s easy and it makes sense.
