Creating a Sustainable Lifestyle

This blog is about two courses that I have run at the University of Southern California; an undergraduate college course about sustainability from the lens of an occupational therapist and Green Lifestyle Redesign®, an employee wellness program. Each has had the effect of increasing sustainable behaviours with some inspiring results.

Has anyone ever organised a litter picking event with patients? Our unit is next to a stream and community park which is often very littered. I have some interest from a few patients to try to maintain these areas for the local community.
