The environmental crisis is the most significant threat to the stability of human civilization today. This crisis has been caused by industrialism and people's general disregard of their embeddedness within an ecosystem. This paper proposes that the most promising ethical framework in which an individual can cultivate an environmental ethic is Aristotle's virtue ethics, the benefits of which have been proclaimed by Martha Nussbaum. However, in order for Aristotle's virtue ethics to accommodate fully an effective environmental virtue ethic, one must reconsider the significance of the body, which Aristotle too quickly disregarded. This paper will conclude with a brief and general sketch of the environmental grounding experience, the appropriate virtuous response to that grounding experience, and lastly a specific example of how that environmental virtue may be applied to a common action in everyday life.
