The intention of adapting world sustainability models to the context of a household provides opportunities for a fusion of lifestyle choices which result in sustainable living. Through the various categories which include shelter, power, food, transportation, water, and waste, the goal of sustainable living is to mitigate the impact of modern life on the environment.
While some see this way of life as a step backward from a technological standpoint, the fact is that those who practice this lifestyle do so by means of some of the most advanced technology available. Adapting the more general tenets of sustainability to personal lifestyle choices can be considered a small but important step in developing a society that can live in harmony with the Earth.
