Post: Claudia’s New Year’s Resolutions 2011 (Week 3: My Social Responsibility)
Comment: Make recycling and reusing a part of your everyday lifestyle—never throw out bottles, cans, newspapers or other items that can be easily recycled. Invest in a stainless steel water bottle to avoid the use of many of those bottles in the first place (greenfeet.com* has great choices, as well as lots of other products to help us conserve resources).
Use reusable dishes and containers instead of buying food in Styrofoam and lots of packaging.
Don’t throw out electronics—lead, cadmium, and other heavy metals and toxins leak out in landfills and seep into waterways and soil. Look on earth911.com for places to recycle numerous items near your zip code. In NYC, there are “electronics recycling days” coming up this weekend, and these are held every few months. Check out: lesecologycenter.org.
Remember, we can all do little things that add up to make a big difference!
