Of course I'd like to drop some pounds, erase my debt, and keep an immaculate house. Of course I want to be a better person. But those big goals are a big undertaking and are the most successful when you set and accomplish small goals to get there.
For 2014, I set two small goals. I can say for certain I'm happy with the results of the first. As for the second...well, sorry to people with birthdays after March who didn't get birthday cards from me. I do care, I promise!
I hadn't thought much on goals for 2015. I always want to build on what has been achieved but didn't have anything specific in mind for how to further my "green living" efforts. Inspiration was recently delivered in my facebook feed when I saw an article about Lauren over at Trash is for Tossers. Wow. This chick is light years ahead of me and puts me to shame in terms of being friendly to the environment.
Long story short, I have a new blog to add to my list of favorites and a new (ish) re•solve for 2015. I think about ingredients in my food and in my products for sure, but TifT has forced me to also take a look at where those products go when they're done. Sure I recycle what I can and void littering, but what more can I do to scale back on the constant outgoing trash? Where does that toxic plastic item go when I'm finished with it?
It's time to take a closer look and declare 2015 as the year of less waste.
