Original Sustainability Tribe

Sustainability Tribe starts with our little family of 3, we call it ‘sustainable family’. Both of us husband and wife have been working as sustainability consultant in the field of sustainable development since more than 10 years. Our friends and colleagues also call us Mr. and Mrs. Sustainability! So it was very natural that we adopted sustainable lifestyle smoothly at our home. Sustainability is such a big part of our life at home and at work that after birth of our son, we could easily find out our own path of making him Eco-aware and figure out green parenting in our own style.

Sustainability Tribe was previously known and loved as Green Living in Dubai, when it started in 2009; there was huge confusion in minds of people about ‘Eco-friendly’. Many businesses opted for ‘green-washing’ their businesses and products, therefore Amruta, founder of sustainability tribe decided to contribute her knowledge and educate people in UAE about region-specific sustainability. In Sustainability there is no one size fits all solution, especially when we are talking of desert ecosystem of Arabian desert. Sustainability requirements in region are so much different than Europe, Americas and even rest of Asia.

Slowly UAE residents started following our journey of sustainable lifestyle and started asking us their related questions. Sustainability Tribe created a dialogue of sustainability at consumer end. Our Tribe grew over the years, many readers joined in and some sustainable brands and businesses joined our sustainability dialogue.

So by now in 2017, we thought it was time to call our Tribe of Eco-minded people in UAE and beyond, ‘Sustainability Tribe’!
