The WHAT and WHY:
Probably everyone has written one since that movie, The Bucket List in 2007.
As a sustainability consultant and educator I am constantly looking for creative ways to introduce sustainable concepts into our daily lives. I started my first sustainability bucket list in 2010. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to have fulfilled some of the original ten entries (those in bold I have completed).
And since I’m still around, I have added a few more over the last couple of years (#11-#15).
Why not make one of your own? After all, the sustainability imperative in a world of diminishing resources really is a moral imperative that requires our full attention so that our children and our children’s children will have a planet they can live with, in and on.
I challenge you to write your top ten sustainability bucket list for 2015. Send us a picture and we will post it on FB. The best list, according to our Board of Directors, will get you a free private tour of the Silver Bullet Tiny House!
