How To Learn About Sustainability and Sustainable Living?

In the world of Google and social media – a lot of our information is learnt through these mediums. While these mediums are great to spread information, they are also easy ways to spread misinformation. A lot of people dismiss sustainability since they don’t have complete information about climate change, businesses and how delicately the future of our planet hangs. Since I have also started on this journey, I thought it would be useful to share some resources –

Sustainable Fashion – Good On You

Good On You is a great resource for people looking for sustainable fashion tips and tricks. They rate all major fashion brands around the world basis the efforts they are making to be more sustainable including being more ethical. They look at the people aspect, the planet aspect and animal aspect. They get their information from CDP Climate Change, Fair Trade, Cradle to Cradle, OEKO-TEX STeP, the Global Organic Textile Standard etc. They also have plenty of tips and tricks posts to help out beginners.

I’ve recently started doing courses on sustainability to get a more wholistic view on business and sustainability. ‘Introduction to Sustainability’ is a beginner level course available on Coursera. The course is 8 weeks long and requires about approx. 25 hours of time to finish.

About the course – The course focuses on key knowledge areas of sustainability theory and practice, including population, ecosystems, global change, energy, agriculture, water, environmental economics and policy, ethics, and cultural history.

Bloggers from Around The World

A lot of people find it more fun and interesting to read blogs to learn. I’d recommend cross checking the information you do get from blogs but some bloggers are doing a great job of sharing their sustainability journeys. The Good Trade is a great resource to read about sustainable fashion, beauty and living. Their list of global sustainable bloggers is also a great start for learning and understanding sustainable living. For Indians, Conscious Charcha is a blog I stumbled across a while back and is a great resource for more local ideas and tips.

(I also share my own personal experiences on my blog but I’m not a expert yet – just a newbie finding their way through the sustainability labyrinth.)

Project Regeneration

A blogger friend recommended this resource recently and it is amazing. Regeneration covers multiple topics from how to bank sustainably to how to travel sustainably to other areas – tips and ideas for individuals as well as corporates.

These were some resources that I find helpful in my sustainability journey. They are basic and walk you though different aspects with ease. Are there any resources that you find useful?
