Trim Your Waste-Line

>> Sunday, January 10, 2010

For the next eleven weeks, The Conscious Shopper will focus on ways to help you:

Trim your waste-line.

We'll be cutting back on our trash production with the following weekly goals:
Why start with trash?

According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, the top three aspects of our lives that make the biggest difference to planetary health are transportation, housing, and meat-eating. So why are we starting with trash?

Because trash is easy.

Reducing the amount of garbage you produce requires very minor lifestyle tweaks - bringing your own bags to the grocery store, requesting that your coffee be put in your own mug, filling up your recycling bin. The hardest part is remembering to do it.

Keep track of your eco-changes by printing this checklist on recycled paper OR be extra green by saving your own editable digital copy.

So let's get to it and see if we can drop a few pounds in 2010. Come back tomorrow for the first trash challenge.
