Our planet is facing an overwhelming amount of environmental concerns—from global warming, the depletion of the ozone, and the loss of critical habitat, to air pollution, water pollution, mounting waste and more.


  1. When factories emit smoke and carbon dioxide without regulatory controls, the resulting pollution of our air, water, and groundwater directly impacts the health of humans—from short-term effects such as asthma and bronchitis, to longer-term effects including organ damage and cancer.

  2. Fossil fuels (in the form of oil, coal, and natural gas) impact every aspect of our environment—from the destruction of natural areas to obtain the fuel, to the resulting harmful emissions, pollution, ocean acidification, and global warming.

  3. The loss of trees and other native plants contributes to global warming, soil erosion, flooding, and resulting greenhouse gases.

  4. The impact of industrial agriculture — from its heavy use of fossil fuel and water, to chemical herbicides/pesticides — is causing numerous forms of environmental degradation.

  5. These combined effects have triggered climate change, which not only impacts the health of humans and animals, it leads to an increase in natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and flash flooding.

  1. Be a conscious consumer when it comes to food, clothing, and products we use. Fast fashion, industrial agriculture, and manufacturing are all very damaging for our environment.

  2. Respect Nature: avoid farmed fish and products with palm oil; choose organic products; pick up trash when you see it; dig up weeds instead of using weed killer sprays; plant bird- and insect-friendly gardens.

  3. Try to cut down on using plastic: get reusable water bottles and food containers; bring cloth bags everywhere you shop; choose products with less plastic packaging.

  4. Learn to recycle properly. Most recyclables end up in landfills because they aren't recycled properly. Learn more about plastics and which ones are eligible for recycling. Buy products made from recycled materials; choose products with minimal (and recyclable) packaging.

  5. Reuse: donate unused/unwanted items; shop at second hand and consignment stores when possible.

  6. Try to limit your energy use. For instance, heating or air conditioning a home uses a lot of energy.

  7. Advocate for renewable energy resources and electric transportation.
