Sustainable Living.....

A thoughtful approach to leading fulfilling, productive and environmentally responsible lives, by balancing our economic, cultural and environmental needs, to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations.

The Sustainable Living Project at OSU quietly began in 1998. Since then, we have provided practical research-based education about reducing consumption and changing lifestyles to:

  • One million plus website browsers
  • 10,000+ workshop participants locally, nationally and internationally
  • Extension professionals and practitioners at over 60 conferences

Has the Project made a difference? We certainly hope so. Our education materials are in use throughout the world. Workshop participants reduce consumption (and save money in the process) on average by 20 %. Extension professionals embraced the concept; now over 90 faculty from 35 land-grant institutions are continuing the work launched here in 1998.

Because of budget cutbacks, this site will close, however you will find our Sustainable Living and Climate Change handbooks, Living Sustainably online course, UnShopping Cards, and much more on the University of Florida’s Living Green website.
