|What does "sustainability" mean to me:
||Whenever I’m asked this I always flash to that famous old Cree Proverb
“Only when the last tree is cut, only when the last river is polluted, only when the last fish is caught, will they realize that you can't eat money.”
|Why am I passionate about being green?
||We are only here on this planet on average about 80 years. We live on the greatest chunk of rock in a neighbourhood that spans many light years across. As far as we know there is no other like it. I don’t want to cheat someone else out of their eighty years because of my selfishness.

At twenty five I am able to live the unique lifestyle I do because of a settlement I received after both parents were killed by a drunk driver when I was fifteen.
