Cycle Way: EDITED: Learn more about the Cycle Way Movement! Cycleways are a pollution-free mode of transport. Switching to utilizing a cycleway for either short or long trips in your community can have a great impact on the environment. Less noise pollution and less air pollution mean fewer emissions. Try to plan ahead and see if you can cycle within your sustainable suburb! Swipe to see an example of a cycling corridor mapped out for the local of the Sutherland Shire > - The corridor connects to a Local Farmers Market, two community gardens, WasteWise Workshops, Two TAFE, local eco-events, schools, doctors, and beautiful scenic views of sunny beaches and an exciting Royal National Park. - This 'off the rails' transport link can help achieve utilization of local resources to their full extent with a sustainable mode of travel. #SustainableSuburbs #CreateSustainableChange #CycleCorridor #CycleSustainably Reply

Country overshoot: EDITED: What is Earth Overshoot Day?! Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity consumes more from nature than the planet can renew within a year. In 1961, humanity used only 73 percent of the biological resources that Earth could renew that year. In 2020, humanity uses 160 percent of what Earth's biocapacity can renew this year. That's as much as if we lived on 1.6 planets. It’s urgent we use less now by being smart about the way we consume resources. While our planet is finite, human possibilities are not. The transformation to a sustainable, carbon-neutral world will succeed if we apply humanity’s greatest strengths: foresight, innovation, and care for each other. The good news is that this transformation is not only technologically possible, it is also economically beneficial and our best chance for a prosperous future. Scroll to see how you can help in reducing country overshoot! #SustainableSuburns #CreateSustainableChange #Sustainability #CountryOvershoot Reply

Sustainable Suburbs: EDITED: Want to learn more about making your suburb more sustainable? Here are a few tips! To make suburbs more sustainable and independent, it's necessary to minimize the food miles by growing food locally. ... By growing their own food, suburban communities will ensure a steady supply of healthy organic food, while eliminating nutrient loss and the carbon emissions associated with long-distance travel. #SustainableSuburb #Localisation #StructuralChange #SocialChange Learn more about how to create a Sustainable Suburb https://biofriendlyplanet.com/green-alternatives/sustainable/6-principles-for-re-designing-the-sustainable-suburbs-for-the-future/ Alternative Solution: A Sharing economy is a socio-economic system built around the sharing of resources. It includes the shared creation, production, distribution, trade and consumption of goods and services by different people and organisations. Benefits * Reducing negative environmental impacts through decreasing the amount of goods needed to be produced, cutting down on industry pollution (such as reducing the carbon footprint and overall consumption of resources) * Strengthening communities * Lowering consumer costs by borrowing and recycling items * Providing people with access to goods who can't afford buying them or have no interest in long-term usage #SustainableSuburbs #SharingEconomy #SImplerLiving Reply

Community Gardens: EDITED: What do you know about Community Gardens? 'Community Gardens' refers to public gardens that bind members of the community to the soil, including organic food growing. If the world's population becomes more industrialized and mobile, community gardens become more essential for incorporating newcomers and reducing social isolation. Community gardeners in Australia and all around the world are motivated by a desire to grow organic food, enjoy nature, practice environmental stewardship, and socialize with others within their community. Looking for sustainable lifestyle goals requires setting up a solid plan that communities need to work on to achieve their goals for sustainable living!
