The concept of sustainability focuses on a balance of society, economy, and environment for current and future health. Using products that are sustainable means using things that will not jeopardize the environment or the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable products are often made from materials which are biodegradable, or that are quickly replenished by nature.
Recycled products are made from a product that has originally served its purpose and would otherwise be discarded, reducing the consumption of fresh raw materials and reducing air and water pollution.
