5 Quotes About Sustainability

Sustainability Quotes by Of Houses and Trees | Five sustainability quotes superimposed over images of mountains, forests and a child hugging a very large tree. Cheesy? Perhaps. True? Hell yes.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I find those inspirational quotes strategically placed over a picture of a mountain or forest pretty damn cheesy. Am I a cynic? Why yes. Yes I am. But you know what else I am? I’m a dreamer and an optimist. Especially when it comes to saving our planet. Which is why I wanted to share five sustainability quotes superimposed over images of mountains, forests and a child hugging a very large tree. Cheesy? Perhaps. True? Hell yes.

Sustainability Quotes: "If you really think the economy is more important than the environment, try holding your breath whilst you count your money."
“If you really think the economy is more important than the environment, try holding your breath whilst you count your money.” – Dr Guy McPherson (Image Credit: Pinterest)
Sustainability Quotes: "When we destroy something created by man we call it vandalism, but when we destroy something by nature we call it progress."
“When we destroy something created by man we call it vandalism, but when we destroy something by nature we call it progress.”- Ed Begley Jr (Image Credit: Pinterest)
Sustainability Quotes: "The earth does not belong to man. Man belongs to the earth."
“The earth does not belong to man. Man belongs to the earth.” – Chief Seattle (Image Credit: Pinterest)
Sustainability Quotes: "I don't want to protect the environment. I want to create a world where the environment doesn't need protecting."
“I don’t want to protect the environment. I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting.” – Unknown (Image Credit: Pinterest)
Sustainability Quotes: "UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – Dr Suess (Image Credit: Pinterest)

And, as a bonus, here is my favourite sustainability quote of all time, which I had previously shared in my How To Plant a Tree Sapling post.

Sustainability Quotes: "The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now."
“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb (Pinterest)

My hope in sharing these is to spread the message that not only is saving the planet a worthwhile – and absolutely necessary – course of action, but it’s also completely doable. Let’s take these somewhat cheesy memes and turn them into real world actions. Sound good?

      Haha! Well I didn’t come up with the quotes nor superimpose them onto the images. I just gathered them up and presented them for your consideration. Not exactly fame-worthy, but I appreciate your praise all the same :)

      Pretty sure you can’t say pristine too many times when talking about the mountains. Pristine… Pristine… Pristine! Nope. It’s all good 😉
