As winter is nearly officially here and temperatures are continually dropping for the season, there may be a misconception that some specific environmental concerns cannot be addressed. However, there are many different ways to continue to work for environmental conservation throughout the winter months, as well as being prepared in general.
In our culture, the ethos of “new year, new me” is very powerful and all over the country there are countless individuals who choose to implement any number of new year's resolutions. For some, it may be to cut out soda or alcohol, for others it may be saving money or practicing mindfulness. However, particularly because our collective society has begun to truly understand a fraction of the importance nature provides to us, there are quite a few unique and environmentally-conscious resolutions that can be implemented in your own life.
These suggested resolutions are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ways to become involved with environmental conservation action. Without individual action and support, there is no possibility for collective action and support when it comes to environmental conservation and sustainability. While the shift away from plastics is incredibly important, the continued diligence to recycle (and to recycle correctly) on our current planet is absolutely necessary. The same is true for soil health and composting our waste, which also works to avoid unnecessary items in already overflowing landfills.
