Living Sustainably in the Urban Jungle

Environment

More than half of the Earth’s population lives in cities and is increasingly moving into cities in search of more opportunities and better standard of living. Sustainable lifestyle can be adopted in cities and is not limited to the countryside only. According to the Oxford dictionary an urban jungle is “a dangerous, bewilderingly complex, or fast-paced environment; an urban area characterised by ruthless competition, struggle, or exploitation”. Irrespective of whether you rent an apartment or own a house, there are many things that you can do to live sustainably in urban areas and do your part for a greener urban jungle.

Living Sustainably in the Urban Jungle

Almost 75% of our planet’s natural resources are consumed in cities even though they cover only 2% of the Earth’s surface. The ever-growing urban jungle relies on eco-systems that are beyond the city limits. Hence, it is the responsibility of its residents to live sustainably and contribute towards ensuring a green future.
