Embrace Sustainability

What Can I Do to Embrace Sustainability?

"The question is not ‘can you make a difference', you already do make a difference. It's just a matter of what kind of difference you want to make" J.B. Hill

Small Changes

Many people taking small steps in the same direction can make a big difference, and this is never more true than when it comes to sustainable living. Whether it's something as small as changing a light bulb or a large scale commitment like using only solar power, what choose has an impact. The truth is that the choices we make in our homes, within our families and in our daily lives have more impact on sustainability than almost anything else in our community. While sustainability certainly means a commitment to our environment, it also means a commitment to our community, and to the unique culture that defines Black Diamond.
