What is the difference between sustainability and going green? Simply put: Going green refers to all aspects of environmentally-friendly products from fashion to buildings to the movement as a whole. Eco-friendly means that a product, practice, or activity won’t harm the environment. Sustainability means that what we do today doesn’t deplete resources for future generations.
What does green mean in sustainability? Going green means using environmentally friendly products and services. Sustainability means using products or services in a way that does not damage the future generations’ resources. Hence, while a final product may be green, its manufacturing or production process may not be sustainable at all.
