Our mission at Live to Sustain is to learn and teach sustainability. We explore subjects related to sustainability for the environment, personal sustainability and local sustainability. We take a realistic approach to sustainability. Our aim is not to divide people. We understand that everyone wants to contribute, but may not know how.<br /> <br /> Live to Sustain teaches people a realistic approach to sustainability. An approach that everyone can learn. Learn how to be a better version of yourself. Learn how to make daily decisions that benefit you and our environment.<br /> <br /> Everyday we make decisions that effect sustainability. The decision to exercise. The decision to eat that less than healthy lunch. The decision to throw our trash away properly. The decision to use less and therefore produce less trash all together.<br /> <br /> Its time to stop living passively. Take responsibility for sustainability. Live to Sustain.

Wearing the wrong sunscreen could be lethal for you and the natural world. Chemical sunscreens leach into your body and have been found in blood, urine and breast milk. In Hawaii they have gone as far as banning certain sunscreens. The ban is for sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate. As this ewg.org article states, "these chemicals are found in many popular sunscreens sold in the U.S., and are linked to hormone disruption in people and the bleaching of coral reefs and coral death."

Here are a few brands we recommend:

Badger Balm - SPF 35 Clear Zinc Sport Sunscreen Cream

All Good Sport Sunscreen Lotion - Zinc Oxide

Neutrogena Pure & Baby Mineral Sunscreen

According to the 2015 Urban Mobility Scorecard, in 2014, congestion caused 6.9 billion hours of travel delay and 3.1 billion gallons of wasted fuel, equaling a cost of more than $160 billion.

Put another way, our cities need to build infrastructure that supports alternatives to commuting in cars. We need better public transportation and we need protected bike lanes.

In San Diego, our city has a Master Plan for "making cycling a more practical and convenient transportation option for a wide variety of San Diegans". However, it seems most of the plans are behind schedule and people are pushing back about removing parking to add bike lanes. In downtown, there is a Downtown Mobility Plan underway that will add 9 miles of protected bike lanes to downtown San Diego. For details about that project see this report.

For some interesting statistics about biking, see PeopleForBikes.org. They are a national bike advocacy group that supports projects around the U.S. that bring "safer places to ride for both children and adults."

Listen to our short podcast, above, for a quick discussion on bike lanes.

In our latest episode, we talk trash. Last month we both kept trash diaries to learn how much and what we throw away each month. One observation we made was that most of our trash was related to food. The vast majority of our trash was food and the packaging that our food comes in.

We can't just stop eating. So how do we reduce our trash. Listen to our episode to learn about some potential solutions.

Have you ever wanted to leave the city to live in the country? Matt and Marissa of Two Ponds Farm did just that when they left New York City for a simpler life on over 60 acres in central Wisconsin. In our interview we learn about why they made the move, how they grow their own food, how much food are they able to produce and other sustainability topics.

During our interview with Matt and Marissa we discovered that "farm life" is really one big venture in sustainability. Firstly, working with animals and the cycles of the seasons while growing food requires constant mindfulness.  Getting in touch with nature by tending to animals and plants is one very great way to learn sustainability. Secondly, eating fresh foods produced and harvested on your own farm is sustainable. The food has much less of a carbon footprint because it is not being shipped to stores and customers, and eating whole foods is much healthier than processed foods found at the grocery store.

Listen in to learn a bit about life on a farm in central Wisconsin. Would you do it? Where do you want to build your dream home or ideal lifestyle? What is your ideal lifestyle. Tell us!
