weekly simple eco tip, 1.2

So maybe one of your new year's resolutions is to be a little greener. If so, you've come to the right place...and I think you're awesome.

Maybe it seems overwhelming to change your habits all at once. First of all, take it one step at a time. Change one habit, get used to it, then change another.

One way to help you stick to your green habits is to hold yourself accountable. Give yourself something tangible to keep track with.

Ways to do that?

Create a Pinterest board for ideas and tips.

Create a recycling schedule (especially if you don't have curbside pickup!)

Set actual goals, like pledging to fill one kitchen-size trashcan with recycables each week or pledging to make one tank of gas last two days longer.

If you have children, create a reward system for you and them for doing green things. (Practically Green is a great way to get ideas for practices, as well as here, of course.) And then create fun rewards!

By giving yourself actual ways to track your green progress, you'll be much more likely to stick with changing your habits!
