Climate Action Bruins

"My mission is to influence people to really start caring about our environment. We only have one Earth and we are depleting it and its resources so quickly. There are so many actions individuals can take to slowly but surely save and protect our beautiful world. I believe all living things should be treated equally-not just humans-but all of nature, animals, plants."

    Last week I decided my eco challenge would be to walk everywhere. Walking more has benefitted me in so many ways in addition to being environmentally friendly. Walking is a simple and accessible form of exercise that has a variety of benefits for both individuals and the planet.
    One of the main benefits of walking is that it can improve physical health. Walking is a low-impact form of exercise that can help improve cardiovascular fitness, strengthen muscles, and increase overall fitness. It can also help with weight management. Walking more just this past week has led me to feel more fit and energetic. Walking can also have mental health benefits. It can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, and boost self-esteem. It is also a great way to clear your head and get some fresh air, which can help improve focus and concentration. I have noticed a great change in my mental health since walking everywhere and I have also noticed my sleep is better!
    Walking is an environmentally friendly mode of transportation. It produces zero emissions, reduces traffic congestion and pollution, and can help reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Walking to work, school, or other destinations is a simple way to reduce our carbon footprint, and it can also save money on transportation costs. It is an easy way to help our earth.
    Walking can also be a great way to connect with nature and appreciate the beauty of the planet. Whether it's a stroll through a local park or a hike in the woods, walking can provide an opportunity to experience the natural world and appreciate the importance of preserving the environment. Walking is a simple and accessible form of exercise that can have a variety of benefits for both individuals and the planet. It is an easy and enjoyable way to take care of our own health while also contributing to the well-being of the planet.

    I have used reusable water bottles and cups for the past 10 years. Every day of high school I brought a Hydro flask full of water, and whenever else I could, I would use reusable cups for coffee, tea, and pretty much everything. My mom used to buy packages of plastic water bottles to keep in our garage fridge. I convinced her about 6 years ago to stop buying them and just fill up a reusable bottle with the filtered water that comes from our fridge. Using reusable bottles (to drink water at the very least) is something I have been passionate about for a while. It is something everyone can take part in with no excuses because it is so easy! I practically cringe every time I see a restaurant have styrofoam to-go cups instead of paper ones. It seems so outdated compared to places that are now using compostable to-go containers. I try to convince everyone I see drinking out of a single-use plastic water bottle to conform to using a reusable one. I mean, we drink water everyday, it's not like it's a waste of money. Plus a pink water bottle is much cuter and more personable than a generic bottle of water.
