Eco-conscious New Year’s resolutions

Start 2020 off right by leaning toward ecologically correct habits this year. Here are a few ideas.

Save water by shutting off the shower while you lather up or brush your teeth, don’t water the plants in mid-day and don’t wash patios, garages or autos with a running hose.  Wash your clothes in cold water.

Always separate your garbage. Remember to bring reusable bags when you buy your groceries, buy as few disposable products as possible.  Plan your shopping to reduce food waste.

Reduce meat and animal products from your diet.

Use natural and non-toxic cleaning products.

In hot weather, open windows and avoid using air conditioners.  Install solar heating.

Bicycle or walk when possible to get around. Take the bus or train instead of using your car when you go on vacation. Carbon offset all your travel.

Plant at least one tree this year.
