Campus Wellness Challenge

Environmental Wellness

 

Your environmental wellness is defined by the livability of your surroundings. Personal health depends on the health of the planet, from the safety of the food supply to the degree of violence in society. Your physical environment either supports your wellness or diminishes it. To improve your environmental wellness, you can learn about and protect yourself against hazards in your surroundings and work to make your world a cleaner and safer place.

 

Examples of Environmental Wellness are:

• Having abundant, clean natural resources

• Maintaining sustainable development

• Recycling whenever possible

• Reducing pollution and waste
