What is Sustainability?


Originally from Montreal, I'm a motivated Canadian deeply committed towards implementing and communicating sustainability. Although things look dire, there's still time to act! To that effect, I'm more than happy to collaborate in order to help advance the sustainability transformation. Now living in Tokyo, I'm ready and willing to reach across countries and time zones to help realize positive change.

    Thanks for explaining sustainability so well Marc-Antoni. I wish more people would try to live by the 4 R’s. I can understand that for many it can be challenging (myself included), but any kind of effort is better than nothing. As well as cutting down on the amount of things I purchase, I also love composting my kitchen scraps. I then use the compost in my garden – much cheaper than buying soil from my local garden centre.
