SUSTAINABLE SELF RESPONSIBILITY
‘Put your own oxygen mask on before assisting others’
line is used far too often but with good reason. It’s wise words! Here at Sustainability in Style we know that getting up each day and fighting the good fight for people and planet can be tough work. With the urgency of climate change, species extinction, and social inequality (just to name a few) it’s easy to dive into frontline battle to affect change. While you might make waves with your impressive dive and have some short-term wins. It’s likely that, in the longer term, this all-in approach will see you war weary and ineffective. Frankly stated, this approach is not in alignment with Sustainable Self as most people cannot sustain this level of input for the long haul.
We’ve been on this Sustainably Stylish path for over a decade. During this time, we’ve had fabulous wins and crushing lows, and learnt a great deal about how to support Sustainable Self for the long haul.
These resources and techniques are here for those who are fighting the good fight in Sustainable Style.

We all want to live our best lives and most of us would like to do so without costing the Earth. Sustainability in Style provides a unique blend of yogic philosophy, mindfulness and science to help you navigate living in sustainable style.

These eight tools are part of a holistic approach of Sustainable Self. Each one has been developed by Sustainability in Style founder, Katie. As part of a framework for supporting and nurturing your spirit, cherishing your physical body, flexing your mental muscles, and as an emotional support system.
