Take the ECO Pledge 2021; small changes can make a big difference

By Kaitlyn Riopelle
To protect and restore our planetary health, start by making attainable lifestyle changes at home.

From swearing off single-use plastic to committing to incorporating plant-based meals into our diets, there are small changes we can make that together would have a big impact on our environment. In order to restore it and curb climate change, we need to make broad changes on an economic, national, and global scale. This may seem like a daunting and possibly a bigger task than any one person can tackle. However, together we can make small and attainable lifestyle changes that not only give each of us a sense of control, but would also collectively contribute to a healthier community and planet.

Take a look at the following video to learn what students, and staff and faculty members at the University of Miami are doing to help our community and planetary health.
