    Spending time outside can improve physical and mental health. Spending time in forests, hiking in mountains, and just being outside can lead to significant health benefits. Studies have shown that walking in the woods can improve blood pressure, boost mental health, and decrease cancer risk.

    Since meat and other dairy foods are typically pre-packaged, going zero waste goes hand-in-hand with reducing consumption of animal products (which is ultimately better for the environment). This will be a great reason to incorporate more vegetable protein, vegetables, fruit, and healthy fats.

    Reducing animal product consumption while also increasing whole plant food intake has many potential benefits, based on research studies, including: Slows the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and heart disease.

    Billions around the world lack access to safe water at home and more than half of the world’s population lacks safely managed sanitation. As a result, water-borne diseases like diarrhea, cholera and dysentery, all potentially fatal conditions, are pervasive. In fact, hundreds of thousands of children die each year from water-borne diseases alone. Women in particular bear the brunt of the lack of availability to clean and safe water.

    Lack of safe water and poverty are mutually reinforcing; access to consistent sources of clean water is crucial to poverty reduction. Currently, 748 million people live without access to safe water and 2.5 billion live without adequate sanitation.

    Outdated infrastructure remains a huge threat to our lakes. From combined sewer overflows to old lead service lines, our water infrastructure needs to be updated to protect water resources for future generations.
