It can be a challenge to lead a sustainable lifestyle that is easy, affordable and suits our personal needs. Is there an eco-balance to living sustainably and living comfortably?

Sustainable living is about making lifestyle choices about shelter, power, food, transportation, water and waste. But will changing certain things that make our lives easy, affordable and comfortable such as long hot showers, the lower price of factory farmed meat, turning on the dryer and driving the car to work affect our quality of life? Are we giving up comfort and ease to do our part for the environment?

How do you feel about this eco-compromise?
