Sustainable: What does living sustainably mean?

Sustainability is about meeting our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Living sustainably therefore, is an important practice for saving the environment and using our resources efficiently.

But what does this actually mean in the day to day practical sense?
