“Green Up” Your 2016: Waste Challenges

year-grass-artifical-59030301New Year’s resolutions are made with the best intentions, but are often broken before January is even over! Instead, consider testing out these new habits once a month, once a week, or every day as an environmental challenge for the 2016 calendar year:

  • Minimize your use of single-serve disposable items
  • Commit to using reusable coffee cups and water bottles
  • Buy bulk foods and store them in glass jars- reduce packaging and food waste
  • Minimize your use of plastics overall
  • Shop and donate to second-hand stores
  • Repair items instead of replacing them
  • Stop using plastic/paper bags and instead switch to reusable
  • Start composting at home- in your backyard or cart system
