You may have heard the word sustainable before.
Do you know what it means, and why it matters?

“Sustainable” means “having the ability to continue.”
A sustainable world is one where energy and other resources are used in ways that allow the earth to continue as a safe and healthy home for humans, plants and animals.

Using energy sustainably now will ensure we can continue to use it in the future without running out of our energy supplies or damaging the environment. This is one of the most important things we can do to keep our planet healthy and preserve the earth’s resources for ourselves and for future generations.

 

Sustainable. Having the ability to continue.
