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.

This month we talk about cultured meat, meal planning and global food. Have you heard of the Impossible Burger but are not sure what it is? In our latest episode, and first of the year, we talk about lab grown foods. In particular lab grown meats and plant-based burgers. In 2013 the first taste test of a lab grown burger took place, and now six years later there are a handful of start-ups hard at work to make lab grown meat that is cheap enough to bring to market and tasty enough for people to eat. Also on our episode this month we talk about meal planning. Being organized and planning out your meals can be environmentally friendly and make you a healthier happier person. Lastly, we talk about food waste and world hunger. We share a few facts about food waste and offer tips on how to can help waste less food.

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!

What does sustainability mean? Its a complex question with many answers. In today's episode, Live to Sustain explains in more detail what sustainability means. Sustainability can be broken down into 3 sub-categories: Environmental, Economic, Social. A balance between these "pillars of sustainability" is required for a sustainable future.

Laura and Adam chat about some of the inspiration behind Live to Sustain. "We are two real people taking a realistic approach to sustainability. Join us as we learn and teach sustainability."

How are you sustainable? What do you do each day to be more sustainable? Its ok if you do not know. You are not alone. Most people are not even sure what sustainability means. Exactly why you should listen to this episode. At the end of the episode Live to Sustain shares 4 pointer for how to be sustainable everyday.

The University of Alberta Office of Sustainability has a very well put together explanation of sustainability. Below are definitions of the three pillars of sustainability directly from the University of Alberta website. There write up is one of the best I have seen. Its clear and details the recent history of sustainability.

"Environmental Sustainability: Ecological integrity is maintained, all of earth’s environmental systems are kept in balance while natural resources within them are consumed by humans at a rate where they are able to replenish themselves.

Economic Sustainability: Human communities across the globe are able to maintain their independence and have access to the resources that they require, financial and other, to meet their needs. Economic systems are intact and activities are available to everyone, such as secure sources of livelihood.

Social Sustainability: Universal human rights and basic necessities are attainable by all people, who have access to enough resources in order to keep their families and communities healthy and secure. Healthy communities have just leaders who ensure personal, labour and cultural rights are respected and all people are protected from discrimination."

GDP is not a proper gauge for the well-being of a country, as it does not wholly consider the people within.

Many people talk, Al Smith walks. Al is a great example of someone taking action. He and his ocean ambassadors take part in regular beach clean ups. Take a look at their Beach Clean Ups page on the groups website to get a better sense of the impact they are having.  The ocean ambassadors are, as they put it, "Protecting Hawaii's Oceans through Dedicated Community Outreach."

Listen to our full interview with Al.

We discuss:

  • How to take action
  • How he went from finance to the beaches of Hawaii
  • Coral reefs at Hawaii's tourist beaches
  • Making change in your community
  • Working with local government
  • Building communities

Guest Bio

Al graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a BS in Finance. Following a 10 year career that included work at both investment banks and technology start-ups in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, Al moved to Hawaii and fell in love with the Windward Side of Oahu. He successfully ran for office and now serves on the Kailua Neighborhood Board and is the Chair of the Parks and Recreation Committee. He has a passion for long distance ocean swimming and may jokingly hold the record at Kuilima Cove on the North Shore where he once swam 68 laps for a total of 8.25 miles. While there is no doubt that others can and have swum further, most of his friends contend that no one else is likely to have been determined (or strange) enough to have done so in such a small cove. Al plans to apply that same determination in his efforts as the Ambassador for Kailua & Lanikai, as well as overall direction of HOA's letter writing, petition, and political campaigns.

Guest Bio
Al graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a BS in Finance. Following a 10 year career that included work at both investment banks and technology start-ups in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, Al moved to Hawaii and fell in love with the Windward Side of Oahu. He successfully ran for office and now serves on the Kailua Neighborhood Board and is the Chair of the Parks and Recreation Committee. He has a passion for long distance ocean swimming and may jokingly hold the record at Kuilima Cove on the North Shore where he once swam 68 laps for a total of 8.25 miles. While there is no doubt that others can and have swum further, most of his friends contend that no one else is likely to have been determined (or strange) enough to have done so in such a small cove. Al plans to apply that same determination in his efforts as the Ambassador for Kailua & Lanikai, as well as overall direction of HOA's letter writing, petition, and political campaigns.
