Benefits of Sustainability

*

    • “Climate change should be seen as the greatest challenge to face man and treated as a much bigger priority in the United Kingdom.” Prince Charles
    • “I think we’re going to find, with climate change and everything else.. things like global warming and goodness knows what else and the cost of fuel for a start.. that things are going to become very complicated.” Prince Charles
    • “We should be treating, I think, the whole issue of climate change and global warming with a far greater degree of priority than I think is happening now.” Prince Charles
    • “I don’t want to be confronted by my future grandchild and them say ‘Why didn’t you do something?'” Prince Charles
    • “The world’s forests need to be seen for what they are.. giant global utilities, providing essential services to humanity on a vast scale. Rainforests store carbon, which is lost to the atmosphere when they burn, increasing global warming. The life they support cleans the atmosphere of pollutants and feeds it with moisture. They help regulate our climate and sustain the lives of some of the poorest people on this Earth.” Prince Charles
    • “We’re busily wrecking the chances for future generations at a rapid rate of knots by not recognizing the damage we’re doing to the natural environment, bearing in mind that this is the only planet that we know has any life on it.
    • Perhaps it has been too uncomfortable for those with vested interests to acknowledge, but we have spent the best part of the past century enthusiastically testing the world to utter destruction; not looking closely enough at the long-term impact our actions will have.Prince Charles
    • “We can not have equilibrium in this world with the current inequality and destruction of Mother Earth. Capitalism is what is causing this problem and it needs to end.” Evo Morales
    • “Natural disasters in Bolivia have been getting worse with the passage of time. It’s brought about by a system: the capitalist system, the unbridled industrialization of the resources of the Planet Earth.“Evo Morales
    • Organic farming has been shown to provide major benefits for wildlife and the wider environment. The best that can be said about genetically engineered crops is that they will now be monitored to see how much damage they cause. Prince Charles
    • “It is vitally important that we can continue to say, with absolute conviction, that organic farming delivers the highest quality, best-tasting food, produced without artificial chemicals or genetic modification, and with respect for animal welfare and the environment, while helping to maintain the landscape and rural communities.” Prince Charles
    • “Consumers can choose whether or not to buy organic produce. Genetically modified ingredients will deny us choice in the long run.The demand for organic food is growing at a remarkable rate.” Prince Charles
    • “Consumers have made it clear that they want organic produce and every sector of the food chain is responding, with the kind of results we have just seen.” Prince Charles
    • We must plant trees, grow gardens instead of lawns, ride bicycles when we can and support responsible local businesses over big brands.” Bryant McGill
