We hear the voices shouting for us to be more mindful, to live with our need, not our greed, but we are lured in by the bigger, brighter, more modern gadgets.
Some of us listen and wonder how we can possibly maker a difference. Sometimes it all just seems like too big a problem for little old ‘me’ to do anything about. But the reality is that we are all responsible for our own little patch of this world. One that we are here so fleetingly on. So how can I live more sustainably? What can I do right here and right now?
The Durban Municipality is giving us an opportunity to be educated and to make the difference. This weekend, starting tomorrow, is the Sustainable living expo. This next section of writing is taken from their website:
The vision of the EThekwini Municipality is to be Africa’s most caring and liveable City by 2030. To this end, the Municipality has identified sustainability as core to its business. In order to realise our vision, the idea of sustainability needs to be entrenched in the lives of our citizens, business partners and all those who live, work and play in eThekwini.
