This is a guide to being a good human for the earth. How can we live on this planet sustainably so we can have a good quality of life for many generations to come? This book provides quick and practical information on how to live sustainably. The first section, "Foundation of Living Sustainably," gives you an overall understanding of how you can think about living sustainably and why. The second section, "The Guide to Living Sustainably," details the straightforward things you can do to live more sustainably. The third section, "Sustainable Concepts You Should Know," provides a brief explanation of terms, concepts, organizations, etc. related to living sustainably that you should be aware of.

I believe that we can live in balance with the earth and maintain a healthy biodiversity without sacrificing our quality of life. The solutions and knowledge are already here. All we need is broader awareness and the will to change. I hope that this book can bring more awareness to the general population and inspire change.
