We live in a world which over uses the term sustainable there are multiple meanings. This is partly because the ultimate definition renders our world as unsustainable, eventually everything finite comes to an end. Should greater emphasis be given to the joy of life while it is still with us or should we stave off the impending horror for as long as possible. A Guide to Being Unsustainable explores what makes life bearable and why that is not at odds with what we think sustainability mighty be. The Scottish Ecological Design Association has published the first two parts of the guide which will be brought together into one lifestyle magazine. If you have any questions that need answered please write to our team on subjects ranging from fashion to gardening, travel to relationships and that big question, is God sustainable? All letters and answers will be displayed on the web site at and a selection will be included in the final publication.
