You can contribute to local sustainable living by choosing more responsible choices of buying and consuming goods. Choosing to buy local consumes less energy and fewer resources. An even better choice is to buy local organic food which keeps harmful pesticides and fertilizers out of local water ways and ground water. Or you can take it one step further and grow your own food in your backyard using organic practices and water wise landscaping and gardening techniques.
