Green Year's Resolutions
- Bring your own bags and containers to stores and restaurants for shopping and leftovers. Also, don't forget your bags and containers at home!
- Take the time to recycle at home and at work.
- Don't litter. By buying less and using less, you can drastically reduced your impact and litter from using packaging material.
- Time your showers. Try to set a record, but don't forget to clean behind your ears.
- Try to drive even less year this year! Plan some social events with a carpool, with a bike, or with public transportation. This is a great way for kids to learn about using public transportation, it's a great way for you to stay healthy, and it's a good way to get together with friends and try new things.
- Plant something! Not only are plants therapeutic, but you can eat things like your own green onions and root vegetables.
- Don't flush things that aren't toilet paper or waste down the toilet. Clogging from these kind of materials can create infrastructural damage that reduces a city's ability to dump water safely back into the environment.
- Try going vegetarian for a day or for a week. Many people around the world eat vegetarian dishes to celebrate an event! Try learning vegetarian recipes from people around the world!
The entire Grades of Green staff wishes you a happy new year! Let's make this the greenest year yet!
