You’ve probably heard the buzz term "sustainability" over the last few years but what does it mean, how does it show up in our everyday lives and how can we practice sustainability now and across our lifetime. There is no universally agreed upon definition of sustainability but all sources boil down to the understanding that everything we need to survive and thrive depends on, either directly or indirectly, our natural environment. UCLA expands to say "To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations." Often sustainability involves three pillars that look at environmental, social and economic issues. There's plenty of overlap within these pillars to reflect the need for sustainability to be viable, bearable and equitable. On a large scale we see sustainability play out in ways like thoughtful land management and development or the advancement of social advocacy and programming to support the health and needs of a community. Individually we make choices day-to-day that impact all of the pillars both overtly and covertly. The waste we send to the landfill, the organizations & individuals we support, the foods we eat, and even the clothing we wear all feed into your overall sustainability practices. Stefano’s SloFood Market is committed to thoughtful product sourcing through local and international vendors that hold shared values to the pillars of sustainability and ethical practices. Join us across the month of March to unpack how Stefano’s SloFood Market is championing sustainability, ethical values and responsible business practices. Amanda Strojinc Leadership Team Member
