Opt to Act – Simple Action #5

Join REI in making the fight for life outdoors part of your life with The Opt to Act Plan – 52 weeks of simple actions to reduce your impact, get active, and leave the world better than you found it. Full details can be found here.

Action #5 Make your New Year’s resolution an environmentally sustainable one...for example, keep following this plan.

If you want to go beyond this 52-week action plan, another resolution we recommend is calculating your carbon footprint. Then, set a goal to lower it by a certain percentage by next year. Whatever you choose, knowing the factors that contribute to your carbon footprint can help you better monitor your output.

We’d love to see and hear your ideas, your pictures, your successes and your challenges as you add this habit to your day-to-day life. Share below!

We hope you have a memorable new year celebration! As you get ready to tackle new trails, explore new places and achieve new environmentally sustainable goals, please know we are here to help! 

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.
