By Kaméa Chayne - Eco Creative, Social Entrepreneur, Author, Holistic Health Coach

How has the media coverage of sustainability evolved over the last decade, and how can we support its presence in mainstream narratives? What was it that instilled in us this idea that living sustainably is all about sacrificing things rather than about gaining things that can truly enrich our lives?   Sharing her wisdom here is Candice Batista, an environmental journalist and the founder of The Eco Hub.
