Being in nature makes us feel good. Many of us have been vividly (painfully even!) reminded of this fact during the pandemic while confined to our urban dwellings for weeks on end. We also depend upon fertile soil, clean water, and pristine air for our bodies to be nourished and thrive.

There are many ways we can help boost the health of our natural ecosystems, while feeling good about making more room for nature in our life. A few examples are: planting a tree, growing an edible garden, or volunteering with a local conservation organization.

Did you know: Reforesting 350 million hectares of forest would #MoveTheDate of Earth Overshoot Day by 8 days?
