Every year, at the end of the year, we all make a list (on paper, on your phone, or in your head what resolutions you're going to make for the coming year; and 2021 is no different.
How many times has LOSE WEIGHT made the top of your list....or SAVE MONEY EACH MONTH FOR A HOLIDAY/NEXT CHRISTMAS!! But, have you ever thought about how ECO you want your new years resolutions to be?
We decided, as a couple, that next year we're seriously going to look into investing in an E Car. That's right...a FULLY ELECTRIC car. Oooooooooooooh I hear you say....fancy :-)
It might not happen next year.....I mean, they're certainly not cheap.....and yet, they WANT us to be buying more environmentally friendly cars....hybrids instead of JUST Petrol (Gasolene) or Diesel, or even LPG.
So to start our New Years Resolutions we want to:
Test drive electric cars
Start VEGANUARY and continue a plant based diet
The rest.....we haven't quite thought of yet, but, here are some suggestions we thought might help you write yours...
Pick up 3 pieces of litter on your daily walks (bring an extra bag!)
Hang your laundry
Substitute one dairy item with its plant-based substitute for the long-term
Convert your home from liquid soap to bar soap
Swap out 3 disposable items for reusable ones
Cook from scratch 5 days per week
Give up meat on Mondays
Start a home composting system
Take 5 minute showers (set a timer!)
Embark on a month-long shopping ban
Get a water bottle you LOVE and use it ALWAYS
Eat local produce
Spend MORE time outdoors
Start next Christmas early....spend in charity shops instead of large stores
Trawl Facebook Marketplace etc for 2nd hand goods
Re-use wrapping paper or turn greetings cards into gift tags
The list of possibilities is endless but if you join us on Instagram we will be hosting challenges, LIVES, Q&As and more from the beginning of January 2022 with showcase days where we show you some of the products we have on offer, the swaps we've made and the network connections we've made with other zero waste ambassadors.
