Eco-Friendly New Years Resolutions

Let's make a deal. Let's all Go Green for 2012
Let's pledge to live a kinder, greener more earth-friendly life in 2012 and beyond. 

Our "Go Green" Resolutions ideas for New Years 2012:

  • buy only cruelty-free beauty products (no tested on animals)
  • take a reusable grocery bag every time you go shopping (say no to plastic!)
  • add more fresh organic vegetables to your daily diet 
  • reuse empty jam/sauce jars to make pretty tea light candle holders 
  • start your own vegetable garden
  • buy more local, natural & organic products (check your local markets)
  • use recycled paper in your office (save the trees)
  • stop buying plastic bottled water (use a refillable stainless steel water bottle)
  • switch from cow's milk to soy milk or almond milk
  • reduce your carbon footprint (turn lights off, reduce water use, unplug electronics)
  • use organic skincare and natural beauty remedies 
  • switch from coffee to organic green tea
  • burn only natural beeswax or soy candles 
  • make donations to animal rights charities & conservation groups
  • switch to a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet 
  • exercise at least 3 times a week
  • recycle more - every little bit counts! (cans, tins, jars, cardboard, paper, plastic)
  • replace soft drinks, energy drinks and alcohol with fresh juice & healthy smoothies
  • buy a hammock and spend time reading books outside
  • donate food or volunteer at a local animal shelter  

Wishing all our Eco Glamazine readers a safe & successful new year filled with new opportunities and eco adventures.
