Environmental Wellness

An Environmental U

 Environmental wellness is about appreciating and respecting our external environment. An environmentally well person is aware of the limits of earth's natural resources and understands that all human activity impacts the environment.  Environmental wellness is also surrounding oneself with positive, comforting and rejuvenating places and people.
