8 Simple Green Resolutions for Each Month of the Year

Declutter Responsibly

Start the year fresh by decluttering your space. Donate or recycle items instead of throwing them away to reduce landfill waste and embrace a minimalist lifestyle.

Optimize Thermostat Settings

Instead of cranking up the heat, layer up and adjust your thermostat to save energy. Aim for a comfortable temperature range between 63 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit during winter.

Embrace Meatless Mondays

Reduce your meat and dairy consumption to lower your carbon footprint. Even small dietary changes can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with livestock farming.

Choose Active Transportation

Whenever possible, walk or bike instead of driving. This not only reduces carbon emissions but also promotes physical activity and reduces traffic congestion.

Support Local Farmers

Buy locally grown food to support regional agriculture and reduce the carbon footprint of food transportation. It's fresher, supports local economies, and preserves open spaces.

Reconsider Air Travel

Consider alternative vacation plans that minimize air travel. If flying is necessary, explore carbon offset options to mitigate your environmental impact.

Say No to Single-Use Plastics

Ditch single-use plastic straws and opt for reusable alternatives. Small changes in daily habits can significantly reduce plastic pollution in oceans and landfills.

Use Reef-Safe Sunscreen

Choose sunscreen that doesn’t harm coral reefs. Look for products labeled as reef-friendly to protect marine ecosystems while enjoying the sun.
