Happy New Year to all of my sustainable fashion friends!
For many, January is a time to make resolutions for the new year. I always love seeing people sharing their hopes and passions for the year ahead. For me, I have never been big on making resolutions just at the beginning of a year, I tend to set goals and create plans throughout the year. However, the fresh start of the new year does provide a perfect time to reflect on past goals (did I accomplish what I wanted to? Did I learn from mistakes?), refocus on my purpose, and set new intentions. An intent that I am carrying over into 2019 is continuing to reduce my everyday waste. This might seem like a daunting task, but you'd probably be surprised by how much of a positive impact very simple steps can have on the environment if enough people adopt them. Below are listed 12 easy tips for reducing waste on an everyday basis. Some of these tips may seem small or insignificant, however when enough people live consciously and adopt these practices into their everyday life, it will have a huge positive impact on our planet and the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
I hope you find these tips helpful and join me in creating the intention to care for our Mother Earth more in 2019!
