25 Good New Year’s Resolutions for a More Sustainable Lifestyle

New year's resolutions

Happy new year everyone.

Even tho we can decide to make new goals at any time during the year, starting a new year is always a good time to start making new resolutions.

Why not choosing good new year’s resolutions that will not only improve your health, but might also improve your finances and make a positive impact on the environment at the same time. 

Here is 25 eco-friendly ideas that can improve your life and help the environment.

  1. Need a new planner? Choose an eco-friendly planner made with recycled paper and materials. I like to shop on Etsy. Etsy is a great place to find hand-made ethically made planners.
  2. Need more clothes? Buy them second hand at your local thrift store. 
  3. Use a wooden toothbrush instead of plastic.
  4. Whenever you’re shopping, ask for no receipt. 
  5. Choose to receive your billing statement online instead of paper in the mail. 
  6. Use cloth napkins instead of paper towels.
  7. Try to reduce your electricity usage by taking shorter showers, closing the lights and reducing the heat in your house by wearing a sweater. 
  8. Use a reusable menstrual cup instead of pads or tampons.
  9. Only buy what you really need.
  10. Shop locally by supporting your local farmers market.
  11. Buy your dry foods in bulk and store them in glass containers. 
  12. Skip the straw, buy reusable straws instead.
  13. Research more before buying something and try to support eco-friendly companies. 
  14. Have a blog? Switch for a green hosting company.
  15. Bring your own bags and containers while going grocery shopping.
  16. Reduce your carbon footprint by walking more, riding a bicycle or sharing a drive with a friend.
  17. Reduce your plastic usage by trying to find a place where you can buy your shampoos and cleaning supplies in bulk and bring your own containers to refill them.
  18. Turn off your WiFi at night and when you’re not using it.
  19. Contact companies to stop receiving their junk mail delivery. 
  20. Use a reusable water bottle.
  21. Buy organic personal care products without chemicals.
  22. Choose energy efficient lighting.
  23. Need a new house? Buy a smaller house and cut your energy use. 
  24. Plant a garden.
  25. Buy loose leaf tea instead of tea bags. 

These were a few good new year’s resolutions that you can incorporate into your life.
