environmental quality can enhance one another
Environmental Protection is compatible with promoting economic welfare:

economy
Key Approaches to Designing sustainable solution:
- Approaches that can inspire sustainable solutions include refining our ideas about
quality of life, reducing unnecessary consumption, limiting population growth,
encouraging green technologies, mimicking natural systems, thinking long-term,
enhancing local self sufficiency, being politically active, voting with our wallets,
and promoting research and education

technologies can help reduce impact
