Sustainability is the practice of taking responsibility for what you consume while keeping harmony with the environment with the aim to keep resources abundant. In such a fast paced society with ever exhausted resources and consumption rates, it may be difficult to be mindful of the processes of production and consumption but as sustainability becomes a greater effort among America and the rest of the world, it will be easier to keep track of incoming and outgoing resources and keep an eco-friendly lifestyle. So while these appendices such as solar and wind power, renewable energy systems and recycling programs are being implemented, it’s important to keep a few things in mind to be a responsible and sustainable consumer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
