    Going green is a phrase that implies that one is going to make an effort to use less of the Earth’s natural resources while also reducing the amount of hazardous waste produced through life or production. Sustainability is “development that meets the needs of the present compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

    As first defined at the 1987 Brundtland Commission of the United Nations through the Brundtland Report, sustainability is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” This is one of the widest used (especially in academics) and accepted definitions of sustainability. To me, “going green” is a cultural shift we have experienced as a result of our desire to live more sustainability and decrease our environmental footprint. To go green is to live sustainability, in short. However, going green refers more to lifestyles and habits, while sustainability is a more academic and philosophical concept.
