  1. Define sustainability.

Working with materials that are not hurting the planet or making it worse, but sustaining a level of environmental integrity where the planet can still thrive. 

 

  1. What does the term and practice of sustainable living mean to you, personally?

Shopping consciously, second-hand, using products like TUSHY that helps save millions of trees from getting flushed down the toilet, using reusable products like a water bottle instead of disposable plastic ones, and recycling.

  1. How do you uphold sustainable practices in your day-to-day life?

I don’t wear makeup except for eyeliner, sometimes lipstick, but that’s it. I  also use almost nothing but water to wash my body and hair, except for organic shampoo twice a month. I order only organic food and do my best to buy local, seasonal products. I eat next to no red meat and mostly veggies, fruits and fish/chicken. 

 

  1. What are your tips for conscious shopping? 

Do NOT buy wet wipes. They not only strip away the natural oils from your behind, but even the “biodegradable ones” take 10 years to break down. Buy a water bottle and only use that. Bring a bag when you shop. Eliminate most red meat from your diet.

  1. Are there people in your life or network that have impacted your decision to live sustainably? 

My name in Japanese means “three beautiful trees” so I have been conscious about this stuff my whole life. 

 

  1. What has been the most valuable reward or effect of sustainable living? 

Producing less waste than most and knowing that I am doing my part to support my child and his generation and the generations that follow.
