Sustainable Living

永續綠色生活

“Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet.” — wikipedia

“綠色生活,是指某一個人或社會的生活方式,以使用有限的天然資源,達至某程度上的可持續性。支持者一般會以永續發展作為目標,並實踐在生活方式當中,例如實踐在交通、居住、能源消耗及飲食等。”

I was born in the 70’s, an era of economic struggle, cultural change and technological innovation.  Most people at the time are working their ass off to provide for the family.  The world is too busy making improvements for technology and the economy than worrying about global warming.  During my childhood, the only reason for our parents to tell us to turn off the lights to conserve energy is to save money, not for environmental awareness.  Until I become a parent myself, I realize the earth is being destroyed badly by humans.  To give our children a better future, to do our best to care for our environment and love our planet earth is our only choice.

我出生於七零年代,那個經濟掙扎、文化改變、科技創新的年代。大多數人為了掙錢讓子孫生活,才沒閒功夫去關注環保議題,整個世界也為了經濟與科技發展而犧牲掉了大自然的環境。在我們童年時期,父母要我們關燈節約能源時的用意,純粹也是為了省錢而以。直到我們自己為人父母,知道這個地球一直被人類破壞殆盡,為了要留給自己的後代一個更美好的未來,盡力環保、愛護我們的地球是我們唯一的選項。

Being living in the city my whole adult life, not till having my own children I get to know the importance of nature.  Taking my kids out in nature, not just being out there having fun, but harvesting the vegetables planted by local farmers, learning about farming, raising the livestock and planting our own food source.  How to live a sustainable life is the goal.  Seems like a big step, but it’s still a possible dream to pursue.    

除了社會後一直都住在都市的我,直到有了自己的孩子之後才知道大自然的重要性。帶著孩子們接觸大自然,不是只有外出郊遊而已。而是從在地小農學習如何種植及收成蔬菜,養殖禽畜,培育自己的食物來源。目標在於如何實踐一個永續的綠色生活模式。感覺需要跨出很大一步,但它是一個可行的夢。

Every day is a blessing.  Starting with a morning sunshine through the window, be grateful to our mother earth. Simple measures like reducing energy consumption, composting food waste, eating less meat, becoming more eco-friendly can go a long way in reducing our environmental impact and making this planet a cleaner and safer place for our children.

每一天都是上天的眷顧。從窗戶透射進來的每束晨陽光,我們必須感恩這個孕育萬物的大地。簡單生活像是節約能源、餐厨堆肥、減少食物浪費、少吃肉食、對地球生態更加友善,都可以減少我們對這個環境的影響, 進而還給我們後代子孫更乾淨、更安全的星球。
