Susty - Originally Susty was short for “sustainability,” but now the term is a badge indicating that something or someone has integrated the needs of others with the needs of oneself.  The choice of how to do good for oneself leads to do-gooding out there in the world for people, wildlife, and natural resources.  We believe that embracing our interdependence between each other and with all of life and nature on Earth is the only way to live. In fact, to do otherwise is simply not to live at all nor to strive for the truly richest life imaginable.
