Why should we care about sustainability?
Well first of all, being sustainable makes sense, with all the fires and floods going on in the world. We need to start caring about our environment.

It is important for a very simple, very straight-forward reason: we cannot maintain our quality of life and the Earth’s ecosystem unless we embrace it.
We will eventually run out of fossil fuels. Thousands of animals will become extinct. We will damage the atmosphere – if we don’t change.
We usually don’t know where to start, but actually, we can start at home. It is easier to find environmentally-friendly products now because Malaysians are more interested and educated on ‘sustainability’.
We see more and more people bringing their own bags at grocery stores and using their own bottles and reusable plastic containers at restaurants and cafes.
Aidil Iman Adid, a social media influencer and a wildlife, climate and environmental advocate, shared on his Twitter account on how you can start making wise purchasing decisions when you go grocery shopping.
Just look out for these logos when you are at the grocery store- it indicates that the products are certified to follow environmental and sustainable regulations.
The products we buy and choose for ourselves can contribute to a sustainable lifestyle. Consider the chemicals you use to clean your home and the food items you put in your bodies.
It is not only good for the environment, it’s also good for your health!
So why not take the first step today?
