Environmental Sustainability

Environmental sustainability is the management of our physical environment in a way that supports living within ecological limits, protection of natural resources, and meeting the needs of communities without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Ways to be environmentally sustainable:

Easy: Turn the lights off when you leave the room

Moderate: Commit to riding a bike or walking instead of driving at least twice per week

Advanced: Plant an organic vegetable and/or herb garden annually
