The phrases “Buy one, get one free,” “Kill two birds with one
stone” and “It’s a two-fer” are part of our everyday language.
How do these common phrases relate to sustainability? Virtually
all of the strategies that promote sustainability have more than
one benefit — also referred to as co-benefits. In many cases,
they provide much more than just a “two-fer.” Sustainability
strategies save money, conserve resources for future generations,
improve public health, respond to climate change and make
communities more attractive places to live.
