Sustainable vs Renewable ResourcesWatch
As I understand it:
A renewable resource naturally replenishes itself more quickly that it is consumed.
A sustainable resource is one that can be consumed without affecting consumption of future generations.
So, where is the difference? I guess all renewable resources are sustainable, by these definitions.
But when is a sustainable resource not renewable? Is it simple when it has to be replenished unnaturally? Trees have to be replanted due to deforestation, for example, because naturally they wouldn't replenish as quickly as we use them.
Sustainable resources mean the resources won't pollute the environment.
Renewable resources may still pollute the environment.
Sustainable resource means maintainable resource.. While renewable resource is just the source that can replenish quickly.
