It is the use of products and services in a way that minimizes the impact on the environment, so that human needs can be met not only in the present but also for future generations. When sustainable consumption is practiced, resources are used wisely and waste products and pollution are minimized.

The main way this is achieved is by doing more and better with less. In other words, we can find ways to meet our needs and desires without depleting our planet's finite natural resources.

This might include carpooling, using renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, developing alternative fuel sources, such as biofuels, for our transportation needs and using environmentally friendly cleaning products.

The definition proposed by the 1994 Oslo Symposium on Sustainable
Consumption defines it as "the use of services and related products
which respond to basic needs and bring a better quality of life while
minimizing the use of natural resources and toxic materials as well as
emissions of waste and pollutants over the life cycle of the service or
product so as not to jeopardize the needs of future generations."

Using resources responsibly rather than depleting them permanently.
