It’s that time of year when many of us are thinking “what am I going to do differently in the next year?” This year’s buzzword, replacing Reduce, Reuse, and Recylce is “Green;” EcoSeek has come up with some interesting green resolutions, like championing the work of the Red Wiggler:
I resolve to continue to spread the word about the red worm’s abilities to improve soil through enriched microbial activity when their casts are used in each person’s garden, either vegetable or flower garden. In doing this we can all save landfill space, save our organics from the waste water treatments plants and enjoy bountiful crops and flowers.
Personally, I like the idea of a national ban on styrofoam and environmental unfriendly take-out containers:
I resolve to use no styrofoam this year. Instead I will buy smaller portions at restaurants and or bring my own tupperware to take left-overs and each time I find myself with left-overs and no tupper, I will mention to the manager that they should no longer use styrofoam and ask for some foil instead.
Wow, this could produce a Tupperware revival… Greenies, tell us what’s working for you, and everyone else, share your resolutions for the new year.
