Top 10 Green Resolutions

Green resolutions are considered for a better environment that is pollution free, or at worst, with regulated pollution. Some of the top 10 green resolutions include:

1. Shopping and eating local

This means considering naturally and seasonally grown vegetables and fruits in one’s area. Having the preference for locally grown products is a benefit to the local economy, environment (transportation distances are minimal, hence less emissions), and one gets the chance to have fresh food.

2. Initiating more walking and cycling

Vehicles emit gases to the environment causing pollution. Walking and cycling have no associated pollution in form of emissions. In addition to cutting emissions, walking and cycling instead of driving saves on gasoline. Walking and cycling is also part of exercising, which counts towards ones health and makes it easy for one to explore their environment more.

3. Recycling

This calls for sorting home waste, both in the recyclable and non recyclable waste. One should always separate waste that can be recycled from the rest. This waste can be used as compost in home flower gardens. This practice also reduces the amount to be collected by the garbage tracks, which helps to conserve the environment as less garbage is collected and dumped.

4. Having a more energy efficient home

This entails such things as using energy saver electrical appliances, which helps to save on electrical energy usage. One should also ensure they unplug any appliances not in use that contribute to heat and energy loss. This counts towards environmental conservation as well.

5. Staying outdoors more

One should avoid being indoors most of the time. This gives one the pleasure of enjoying nature and being closer to the environment. It also helps one interact with the community, where everyone engages in better environmental conservation practices.

6. Keeping watch on toxic products

You can realize this by carefully checking what materials are used in various products, and choosing the ones with less toxic residuals. Such products include beauty products, detergents and even electronics. This saves on environmental pollution and keeps everything green.

7. Maintaining electronics

New electronics are bought every year. The older ones are discarded by dumping them. You should try to maintain the old ones instead of purchasing new ones every now and then. You should also ensure that you dump the ones that break down through proper recycling. This saves on money and conserves the environment too.

8. Supporting clean energy

In this, its always better to purchase some green power from local companies. It’s also a better practice to support neighbors and organizations who offer green power energy. This helps in motivation and production of more green power, thus encouraging more clean energy.

9. Regulating use of paper

Paper is prevalent everywhere, used for almost everything - paper plates, packaging paper and paper towels. Aim at using less packaging paper, as well as using single-use paper products. You should employ products that can be re-used over and over before throwing them away. This saves on environmental degradation in that less paper demands means less trees felled.

10. Growing a garden

It may be a flower garden or something. In any case, a garden requires only a small portion of land. Growing a garden reduces on your dependence on mass-produced foods, which affect the environment in one way or another. Image the difference it would create if just 50 percent of all people had their own vegetable gardens!
