A sustainability mindset is one that focuses on the long-term goals of environmental justice and progressive climate action. It's thinking and acting in a way that promotes and supports beneficial practices that protect and conserve the health and future prosperity of our planet.
As the world evolves and technology advances, the way in which we approach consumerism is constantly changing. From online shopping and mobile banking/payments to faster and more accessible delivery options; our ability to obtain goods and services with more ease and frequency is often at odds with the indisputable need for ethical and sustainable products.
Oceans cover just over 70 percent of the Earth's surface; it's no exaggeration to state that these expanses of water are vital for our continued survival. The seas on our planet provide food, economic stability and generate most of the oxygen we breathe — when climate change disrupts and threatens oceanic life; it endangers all living things (including us).
Travel and transportation play a substantial role in fueling unsustainable levels of climate change. With road vehicles, rail, shipping and aviation accounting for approximately a quarter of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions; it's clear that urgent environmental innovation is needed within these industries — as well as changes to our own behaviours and choices.
It's an undeniable fact that when people unite under a common goal and implement actionable steps to achieve the progress they wish to see, change is possible. Right now, the most significant worldwide issue we're facing is dealing with global warming and the accelerated climate change it's triggering.
