New Year’s Resolution to Recycle More

New Year's Resolution to recycle moreStart a Recycling Revolution in 2012!

Some resolutions to consider:

  • Resolve to begin recycling if you don’t already. You can start small. This site provides a wealth of information about getting your recycling efforts off the ground.
  • If you already recycle, step it up a notch. If your curbside recycling service doesn’t accept a particular item (like glass or cardboard), resolve to begin taking that item to the drop off facility in your area.
  • Resolve to purchase more products packaged with post consumer recycled materials. The higher the percentage listed on the package, the better.
  • Resolve to purchase more items made from recycled materials. Paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, and many other paper products fall into this category.
  • Resolve to purchase more items in bulk, thus reducing packaging waste.
  • Resolve to create at least one creative craft using something you might otherwise throw away. This is fun, gets your creative juices flowing, can reduce stress, and is a great way to spend some quality time with your family.
