Welcome to Sustainable Sundays
If you read this blog regularly you know I have a standing Fun Friday post where I try to post something to raise a smile for anyone reading the blog. Starting with the first Sunday in the New Year I’ll be posting a Sustainability post each Sunday.

The point of these blogs is not to convert anyone to a new environmental ethic, or make anyone feel bad about the way they live. Instead my focus will be to educate folks about some of the issues related to sustainability, provide some ways in which you can live more sustainability and hopefully show how the triple bottom line concept of sustainability provides good things on the social, environmental and economic fronts.
