Green New Year's Resolutions

Once again, tells it like it is! It's not so hard being green, trust me. Here are some easy, peasey green (re)Solutions for 2010 and beyond. You can do it...

Some hope to lose weight,

Some to be better men.

Why not pledge to be greener

in the year two-thousand ten?

Our goal is to bring awareness to the multitude of small steps we can all make to help benefit our lives as well as the environment. Here are some simple changes you can make all year long as part of your Green New Year's Resolutions:

  • Recycle more! Some smaller recycling kiosks only take bottles and cans, but did you know fullrecycling centers take cereal boxes, junk mail, phone books and even your old electronics?
  • Take your own lunch to work in a reusable bag or container - save money, create less waste and savor last night's yummy leftovers today!
  • Buy a shopping bag...or four. Many stores, such asRalph's and Target, are now giving you cash back for carrying reusable shopping bags. Cutting out the paper and plastic gives you a more durable and comfortable way of carrying your groceries while also reducing waste and allowing you to earn money.
  • Use cloth napkins. Every time your family does, you save money (and trees).
  • Carpool. Next time you're hanging out with friends, ask to carpool. Split the cost of gas and parking and minimize pollution at the same time!
  • Shop organic. Fresh and natural foods taste great, benefit local farmers and don't contain harmful chemicals, antibiotics and pesticides that are detrimental to the environment.
