- Eat meatless one day per week (why? check out this post)
- Use only reuseable bags at the grocery store. Friends don’t let friends use plastic.
- Choose one environmental issue – elephant poaching, climate change, fracking, clean water, the illegal trade in tiger or reptile parts, the Keystone XL pipeline, mountaintop removal, local agriculture, another local issue – and resolve to get involved. Research the topic and, at least twice during 2015, write to your elected officials to share your opinion.
- Read at least two books on environmental topics. Start with Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, or check out The Forest Unseen by David George Haskell.
- Reduce your use of plastics – start by “just saying no” to plastic straws. Here’s an interesting article on the topic from HuffPost. Be sure to use your baggie dryer!
- Vote green! Don’t miss any elections in 2015!
- Get out of your comfort zone! Choose one environmental action that’s going to take a bit of work and make it your goal for 2015.
