Sustainability is about protecting our environment from harm as a result of human activities and taking positive action to improve it. There are many ways that people can adopt sustainability, some of which involve making just small lifestyle changes.

Sustainability is also important to help tackle climate change. Climate change is a big global challenge. The greenhouse gases we produce through everyday activity, such as heating our homes and driving our cars is causing global warming leading to climate change. In addition, the wastes we are producing are having a detrimental effect on the environment.
