What's Your New Year's Resolution? http://3bl.me/85z8hz

Hey there party peeps! Hope everyone had a splendid New Year's Eve and Day! I want to wish you all a new year filled with joy, love, peace, happiness, success and [insert noun of your choice]. It's amazing how fast times seems to go by [in retrospect]. I always look forward to the new year because of the guaranteed fresh start. I, like many others, take it as a time to force myself to make changes. Some of these changes are somewhat simple and tangible like 'eat less pizza', and some of these are a bit more grandiose like 'live more in the moment.' And while I was thinking about some of the green items I wanted to add to my list, I thought it would be great to hear what resolutions or goals others were committing to for the coming year.

What will be on your list of resolutions? I landed in a TreeHugger forum and found others had made goals like:

  •    Buy an eco-friendly car
  • Forgo plastic straws at restaurants

  • Raise awareness about environmental issues

  • Plant a garden

As for me, it's all about the baby steps...I think this year I will try to:

  • Do more recycled art projects involving stuff just lying around the house or purchased at thrift stores

  • Conserve on my heat consumption--whether it be the temperature of the house, my shower water, the laundry water, etc.

  • Remember to keep a reusable bag(s) with me....be it in the car, my purse, etc.

  • Buy an aluminum water bottle.

  • Stop using so much paper towel

What about you...what will you be committing to this year?
