    It seems governments and people are putting effort to achieve sustainability. World Commission on Environment and Development said a sustainable society "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Living sustainably, there would be no waste, and we would use half the amount of energy and materials budget we do now. "We need self-respect, identity, community, love, variety, beauty, challenge, and a purpose in living that is greater than material accumulation."

    This site has good information and is simply laid out but some sections are a little confusing on the layout.
  •  
    Arizona is a good state to be considered a sustainable state. Becuase of the sun and how it provides power with solar engery. Arizona is in the best position and hits the brightest spot of the sun, that's why it's so bright here. Thus leading to a lot of solar pannels being put up.

    This site was a good pick because it has a lot of information which will help Arizona.

    I really enjoyed reading this article because it ties in with food waste what we have been taking about. For an instance I thought they were the same back to going "green" it is good to learn the difference to comprehend both. This is also very helpful for those of us who would like to help but do not know how.
  •  
    To achieve a sustainable society then food waste must be recycled as opposed to being sent to landfill sites around the country. We all know the problems that our planet is suffering through global warming that is partly aided by the greenhouse gasses that are produced when food waste is sent to landfill and the ensuing fluctuations in temperature that is suffered around the globe.
  •  
    I really like your comment Norma i Read the same thing but saw it in a different light. But then after reading about your going green comment i thought about how ironic it is that color is being considered a sustainability method. It is great when you can see something from someone else point of view and get more from something you already agreed with.
