Thank you for participating in my short course on environmental sustainability and fitness.
I understand that many of the topics outlined you may have heard about or perhaps they are new to you, so it can be a bit overwhelming. I would suggest to anyone who has made it this far to continue reading and looking into any particular topic of interest. We need to do our part because every little bit matters.
Within the fitness community there is a lot of hesitancy to change or adopt any wholesale lifestyle changes. I would implore you to please examine your current choices and the impact it may have both on your health and on the future of our planet.
I will leave you with a final thought about the greater good and a theory of Tragedy of the commons. This believes if we use up too much of a shared resource for our own personal gain, it will be detrimental to the public as a whole. More specifically if we consume too much protein, use too many plastic bottles or disregard the source of our clothing; it will have negative consequences on future generations to have a planet to call home, let alone have any resources to use.
