Environmental Wellness

Leading a lifestyle in which we recognize our impact on the environment and promote practices that sustain the earth’s resources.


  • Recycle, if available
  • Practice conserving resources (energy, water)
  • Explore ways to reduce your carbon footprint
  • Engage in activities to improve the environment (e.g., a clean-up)
  • Support causes that protect the environment

Tips for Environmental Wellness:

  1. Consider offering to recycle items (aluminum, glass, plastic, etc.) for friends or family members who decline to recycle, or at events where organizers won’t be recycling.

  2. Plan your travel, even when running errands around town, in order to efficiently use your time and limit how much fuel you use.

  3. Declutter your spaces (home or office); work on one room or area at a time, and once it’s decluttered, try to keep it that way.
