SustainAbility NewsletterA joint publication from Audubon Lifestyles and The International Sustainability Council


SustainAbility is a free quarterly newsletter co-produced by the International Sustainability Council and Audubon Lifestyles. Living a sustainable lifestyle requires each one of us to conduct our lives in such a way to encompass an awareness of Earth and its processes. Each of our choices require a consideration of the consequences, and the way that each decision affects the environment, society, and the economy. By minimizing our "ecological footprints" and the extent to which we create an environmental impact by living sustainably our hope is that we will preserve the earth for future generations.

Local Government and the Environment

VoteMillions of us feel strongly about a host of issues, but fail to get involved and make our views known to decision makers.

What can you do?
Contact your elected representatives - Whether it's on the local, state, or national level, let the people who represent you in government know what you think -- and what you expect -- concerning issues that are important to you. Write, phone, and email your mayor, governor, and state and national legislative representatives to let them know you're watching -- and that you vote.

Report the polluters in your community. Do your part to make sure that local industries comply with regulations on discharging waste into air or water, or onto land. Join a local clean water or environmental group that monitors industries and sewage treatment plants that are discharging wastes into your water or air.

Familiarize yourself with the procedures for reporting violations to the local and county environmental and health authorities.
