The ABCs Of Future Sustainability... Easy As 1-2-Tree
November 10, 2017 | Brandon Mills
If you have been following along with the Remedy Blog over the past few weeks, you know that "Blue Zones" are areas that provide their residents with the most happiness. If you look closely, you can see that they all share a lot of the same traits. We think its obvious that we need access to nature and bike paths, but could you imagine that another key feature of these communities is sustainability? As local awareness continues to build, we should begin to recognize communities that are putting projects in place to create a more symbiotic relationship with our surroundings.The RAND Corporation (our next door neighbor right here in Santa Monica) is deeply involved in communities around the country that have created initiatives, that at their core, are driven by our much needed effort to design a sustainable future within our growing societies.

As Technology Advances So To Must Sustainability
This study makes some great points as communities are attempting to take a long-term systems approach to community problems by addressing environmental, economic, and social issues in an integrated manner. As we support these initiatives we gain more insight into what works and what doesn't. Currently, just getting these projects into the action stage seems to be where we are at. However, the more we collectively share our experiences, over time, we can create a future standard that all sustainable projects can look to live up to... as well as create an evaluation system that will allow us to plan and deliver on these projects with the most effectiveness.
So you may be thinking, "self, what does the word sustainable make me think about?" Well, for me... my mind (and belly) goes right to local, seasonal produce grown right here in our own communities. If you feel the same, join Remedy Hike this weekend as we hit the local farmers market and discuss nutrition through the scope of sustainable cultivation.
