Your New Year’s Green Year Resolution
Almost everyone loves to make a New Year’s resolution in those heady, sugar-infused, belt-stressing days after Christmas. Yes, New Year’s resolutions are popular and fun to make…though they are harder to keep for sure.
Luckily no one is keeping tabs…unless you sign an oath in blood or something like that.
Some people make a resolution to quit smoking. Some to lose weight. Some to exercise more. Some to eat less. Some to find a new partner. Some to get a better job. Some to make more money. Some to conquer the world.
Ah, yes, the world. Now that we are in the season of New Year’s resolutions, and since you still have some planning time to make yours a really good one, why not think a bit about the state of the Earth?
Is there a resolution you can make that will help make the world a better, greener place? Can you do your part, with a firm intention and strong-hearted resolution, to help preserve the environment?
Perhaps you might resolve to carpool with colleagues to work. Or maybe you can resolve to take reusable bags when you go shopping. Why not resolve to buy all organic and natural products? Or why not commit to taking your own homemade lunch to work everyday?
Think about it just a little. Remember what Gandhi said, challenging all future generations: “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
So, what Green Year Resolution are you willing to make?
And are you brave enough to keep it, to be the change so that we all can see it in this lovely world?
Please, friends, share your Green Year Resolutions! Or suggest resolutions for others (e.g., President-elect Obama)!
