According to the Marrakech Task Force on Sustainable Lifestyles… “Sustainable lifestyles are patterns of action and consumption, used by people to affiliate and differentiate themselves from others, which: •  Meet basic needs, •  Provide a better quality of life, •  Minimise the use of natural resources and emissions of waste and pollutants over the lifecycle, and •  Do not jeopardise the needs of future generations.“ Sustainable lifestyles should reflect specific cultural, natural, economic and social heritage of each society.
