Sustainability Day 2022 is celebrated on last Wednesday of every October, which is going to be 26th of October this year. This can vary country to country; however, we should observe and celebrate all the days around the year as sustainability days. The purpose of celebrating sustainability day is to create awareness among the masses about sustainable approaches in their lifestyle in order to protect the environment, boost the economy and maintain a good social system.

Sustainability means fulfilling the needs of current generations without compromising the needs of future generations, while ensuring a balance between economic growth, environmental care, and social well-being.

There are numerous ways which can help us to be sustainable, such as.

Declutter your closet.

Recycle paper, plastic, glass, cans, etc.

Take shorter showers.

Grow your own food.

Buy reusable items.

Go paperless. 

Turnoff the extra lights and appliances. 

Carpool or use public transport. 

Sustainability is not about big actions taken by the governments on massive scales only, but it is small, individual actions taken together.
