I already have schedules and calendars all over my room, but I thought it had good advice so I bought it (Plus it was on sale and you know I'm a sucker for a good deal!)
Hopefully, you'll pick up some new tips that will become a lifelong habit
(Hey, I didn't always turn off all the lights, unplug unused appliances, and wash laundry in cold water either!)
Come on, people. Little things make a big difference!
(Over 55 inches of snow in NYC is NOT NORMAL!)
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle!
New Year's Resolution:
Use it up. Wear it out. Make do. Do without.
Don't de-ice with salt:
No chemical de-icing material is good for plants or the soil. Instead, spread sand, gravel, or ash to gain some traction. If you must de-ice do so in moderation.
Check out a product called Combo Therm, available at hardware stores, that forms a bring beneath the snow, discouraging ice from forming. Apply it before the snow falls and you'll use less de-icer.
Green your takeout:
Stryofoam, flexible plastic, and anything noncompostable is NOT green. Look for petroleum-free plastic cups made from corn, tough clamshells made from recycled materials, and cardboard made from renewable resources, delivered by carbon neutral companies.
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
- Lord Byron
