Green resolutions for the new year
Green-minded self-improvers, we’ve got just the resolutions for you. In 2005, pledge to tackle “the big stuff” — your choices on transportation, food, and large appliances. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, an individual’s transportation choices represent their single biggest impact on the environment. Less is more, and efficiency is key (gas-guzzling is so 2004). Upgrading your large appliances to more efficient models will also cut energy use while creating an enviable air of chic modernity (so, really, that’s two resolutions in one!). And finally, you are (as green as) what you eat. So: ready, set, resolve!
