No, not that time....Eco-resolution time!
Last month I read a great post at Zayna's Garden - she wrote about (and joined) It's Not All Mary Poppins eco-resolutions for 2009. It sounded like such a great idea, I quickly hopped on board. I'm a follower, what can I say?
Last month I resolved to start recycling again. I can safely say I'm back in the groove. I still haven't taken all my stuff into town to actually recycle, but I have gotten back into the habit of separating everything and setting it aside. My recycle bin and a trash bag are ready and waiting to go.
This month, I resolve to do two things: Take four "litter walks" around the neighborhood, and to turn off our computers and printer every night.
Once a week BW and I will take a walk around to our local park, picking up litter as we go. BW will get to the park, I will get some exercise, and there will be that much less trash on the ground. I'll be setting a reminder on my phone so I'll remember. And telling BW, because you know how kids are when they want to go to the park.
As for the computers - I already try to turn them off each night, but I've been slacking. I want to get back in the habit again.
Anybody care to join me?
