Environmental wellness challenges you to live a life that is respectful of your surroundings. It is the ability to recognize your personal responsibility for the quality of the air, water, and land that surrounds us. It is important to realize that your daily habits directly impact your ecological footprint. In order to create positive environmental wellness, you must be aware and conscious of the efficient use and protection of our resources. Additionally, it is your responsibility to create a healthy and inclusive environment where all people, regardless of identity or ability, can thrive and be their best selves.
