Live Sustainably in 2024: Achieving a Sustainable Future

Sustainability refers to the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable living practices aim to balance economic, environmental, and social considerations to ensure long-term viability and resilience. This involves adopting habits and behaviours that prioritize the responsible use of resources, eco-friendly practices that minimize waste, reduce carbon emissions, conserve natural resources and preservation of natural ecosystems. Following are some methods that we can adopt for sustainable living: 

How to live sustainably?

In an era where the whole world knows that we need to accept sustainable solutions to sustain this planet the question ‘How to live sustainably?’ comes across our minds very often. We all understand sustainable living is the need of the hour but what are the solutions that are present? What are the habits we should take up and how can we contribute towards a greener and more sustainable future? Let us answer these questions for you.


6 Ways to Live More Sustainably and Save Money

1. Renewal Energy Adoption

Renewal Energy Adoption

The first step towards creating a sustainable ecosystem is eradicating the sources of energy that are pollution-generating and non-renewable. Adopting eco-friendly energy sources like biogas, installing solar plants at home, reducing the consumption of electricity, and installing eco-friendly appliances that save electricity are a few of the steps that can not only save your electricity bill but reduce your carbon footprint.

2. Green Transportation

Green Transportation

According to a dataset released in 2022, the total number of vehicles in our country is 326.4 million. Imagine the amount of emissions from these vehicles and their total carbon footprint. With a contribution of 24 % of the carbon emissions vehicles running on the roads are one of the major sources of emissions in the country, to remove this we can adopt various sustainable alternatives, travelling on a cycle for short distances, using public transport or switching to eco-friendly vehicles that run on alternate energy sources like Bio-CNG and electricity.


3. Waste Reduction

Waste Reduction

India ranks among the top 10 countries globally in the generation of municipal solid waste. A report from The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) reveals that India produces more than 62 million tons (MT) of waste annually out of which 31 MT of waste annually is getting dumped in the landfills. This waste dumped in landfills contributes to GHG emissions. Therefore, adopting sustainable practices like abstaining from the use of single-use plastics and using eco-friendly alternatives like jute bags, composting or using organic waste to generate biogas are some of the ways one can decrease waste generation on an individual level.


4. Organic Waste Management

Organic Waste Management

Decreasing the waste being generated is the first step but since you can’t eradicate the organic waste being generated in a household managing it correctly becomes a crucial step. One eco-friendly solution that shines in the dark and provides multiple benefits along with the management of waste is the installation of a biogas plant.

A biogas plant reduces methane emissions by decomposing organic matter, mitigating greenhouse gas impact. Secondly, the produced biogas serves as a renewable energy source for electricity or cooking, decreasing reliance on non-renewable fuels. The nutrient-rich slurry the byproduct enhances soil fertility, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and promoting sustainable agriculture.


This process helps mitigate the issue of waste management by turning the organic waste into multiple valuable resources. Installing biogas plants helps in creating a more sustainable, eco-friendly, and circular approach to waste management.


5. Water Conservation

Water Conservation‍

Water is a precious resource, and conserving it is crucial for sustainability. Simple habits like fixing leaky faucets, taking shorter showers, and installing water-saving devices in your homes and commercial spaces can significantly reduce water consumption. Installing STP in your residential areas and using the treated water for non-potable purposes like watering plants or flushing toilets and Installing flush-free urinals in your office space are some of the sustainable and eco-friendly water-saving technologies one can adopt.

6. Conscious Consumption

Conscious Consumption

Adopting a minimalist lifestyle and practicing conscious consumption can reduce waste and conserve resources. Before making a purchase, consider whether you need the item or not, pick up durable, high-quality and eco-friendly products, and support companies with sustainable and ethical practices.

The Importance of Sustainable Living

  • Environmental Preservation: Sustainable living helps preserve natural resources, reduce pollution, and minimize the impact on the environment this in turn contributes to the conservation of biodiversity and ecological balance.

  • Climate Change Mitigation: By reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting renewable energy sources, sustainable living plays a crucial role in mitigating climate change and limiting its impacts on the planet.

  • Resource Conservation: Sustainable living practices focus on responsible use of resources such as water, energy, and materials, helping to conserve finite resources and ensure we leave some for future generations.

  • Health and Well-being: Sustainable living promotes healthier lifestyles by encouraging the consumption of organic and locally sourced foods, reducing exposure to harmful chemicals, and use of eco-friendly products.

  • Long-term Sustainability: By prioritizing long-term sustainability over short-term gains, sustainable living helps build a greener and better future for current and future generations.


In conclusion, embracing renewable energy, green transportation, waste reduction, and organic waste management are key to living sustainably in 2024. Additionally, conserving water, practicing conscious consumption, and supporting sustainable initiatives are crucial. Together, these actions contribute to a greener future and a healthier planet. Let's commit to making small changes today for a more sustainable tomorrow.
