Sustainable Living Information
Sustainable Living Education Trust
gathers and provides useful information for action - the practical stuff in NZ that you need to know to 'make a difference'. We start with easy no-cost actions, then small investments that pay for themselves, such as energy efficiency, and on then to the bigger challenges that you will have opportunity to tackle less often, such as when moving home, changing a vehicle or appliances, raising babies, renovating a house and making long-haul travel decisions. We aim to help you move into lower-carbon living, and still have fun.
What's your footprint?
We can help you to understand and record your carbon footprint, in partnership with CarbonZero
and to measure other aspects of your environmental footprint whilst keeping your well-being in mind.
If you know exactly what you are seeking on an aspect of sustainability, try a keyword or phrase in our site search engine
(top right of this page) or go direct to the issues
pages to get free information grouped by topic as pdf files in the 2010 edition. If that does not provide ready answers, you are welcome to write by email- use the comment section of our registration page. A new edition is in preparation 2013.
