(THE VERSION) Many people think of New Years resolutions and brainstorm ways to improve for the next year. What if those resolutions were expanded to include goals that benefit the planet, our communities, and society?

Although it might not be the most common approach, it can help you to see other ways you can be of service to others.

These are four popular New Years resolutions that will help you improve your relationship with the natural world in 2022 and beyond.

Pay more attention to how your actions affect the environment

Each of us has an environmental ethic that reflects how we value, manage, and ultimately relate with nature. This relationship can be improved by balancing the reciprocity between us, nature, and how much we give and take. A mishandled relationship to nature, whether it’s our addiction to plastics that end up in landfills or the use of fossil fuels that heat the Earth, is not good for us or the Earth.

We all have a greater responsibility to reduce the environmental impact of our actions in 2022. We can also encourage governments, businesses, and other organizations to make it easier to protect the environment for people with different socioeconomic backgrounds. This includes making recycled goods more affordable and making public transportation reliable and accessible.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has many resources that will help you reduce waste at work, home, in your community, and during holidays. You can also learn tips from the website such as turning off or disengaging lights during the day, recycling packaging materials, and using online billing services to replace paper mail.
