The last week of our summer wellness series focuses on environmental wellness. This involves taking care of your personal surroundings. Actively working to serve your environments can improve your health and the health of the people around you.
There are many things that you can do to reflect on how you are being mindful of your impact on the environment. Here are some things to consider:
Do you recycle? Why or why not? How do you recycle?
Do you attempt to converse energy? How do you conserve energy?
Do you think the government is doing enough to protect our environment?
How can we reduce our carbon footprint?
Why is preserving the wilderness important?
We will use this week to address some of these issues on a global level but also help you consider how you can play a role in your personal life to help preserve this beautiful planet we live on!
To start some reflection, below is a graphic that lists 10 reasons to drink tap water that we got from the Fairfax Water Newsletter. It shows how much is wasted in the creation of bottled water.
Would having this knowledge about the waste bottled water creates, change the way their drink water?
