What does "sustainability" mean to you? That's the question that JPG Magazine, a publication of reader-submitted photography, posed to members of its online community, who posted hundreds of images of peaceful landscapes, freshly grown vegetables, bicycles, wind farms, and, well, a few fairly inexplicable oddities too.

The magazine's editors picked 10 photographs they thought best illustrate "strides people are making toward becoming sustainable; whether it's a big change in your community or a small tweak to your daily routine" -- images that they've allowed us to showcase here, along with some additional submissions we also liked.
