We are not a product of our environment. We are a product of our thoughts and actions which can be persuaded by our environment. We can also choose not to be persuaded by outside stimuli like our environments. We can choose to envision a new environment. We can choose to go different places, do different things, read, gain new knowledge, and more. All are choices we as individuals can make for ourselves.
