Easy As One is a public awareness initiative by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the lead state agency in Florida for environmental management and stewardship. Easy As One encourages citizens to adopt more sustainable habits that protect our air and water quality, conserve water and reduce waste.
Easy As One highlights easy actions each one of us can take to make sustainable practices part of our daily lives at home, at school, at work and at play. This site provides a 24/7 source for information about green practices so that you can make informed decisions about the simple choices you make every day that impact the environment.
Throughout the year, DEP will hold collection events statewide, making it easy for you to protect air and water quality and reduce waste by bringing items to the collection point for proper disposal or recycling. Check the Events calendar for dates and places.
Though a state agency can regulate and recommend sustainable practices, actions are an individual choice. A sustainable environment doesn’t happen with regulations and recommendations. It happens with you.
DEP welcomes the opportunity to highlight, feature and work with others promoting green actions, initiatives and programs. Learn about our participants and how you can participate.
We appreciate and value your comments. The purpose of this Blog is to create a dialogue that explores ways in which we all contribute to environmental protection. Our every action influences the environment. One ordinary action, collectively, produces extraordinary results. Both positive and negative. We encourage you to share your thoughts related to the topics being discussed. Please review the full comment policy before posting.
