If the idea of sustainable living has been of interest to you but you don't quite know how to begin your journey, this list of 10 New Year's Resolutions for a more sustainable lifestyle can help get you started.
1. Reduce plastic use
The world's plastic problem is big, really big! 33 million tons of plastic waste per year is generated in the US alone and only a fraction of it is recycled. Plastic is awful for the environment. It ends up in landfills, beaches, rivers, oceans and contributes to a plethora of environmental problems.
And if there is one thing you can do in 2020 to get started on a journey to a more sustainable lifestyle, it would be to reduce the amount of plastic you use on a daily basis.
Start by saying no to plastic bags and single-use plastic storage. Invest in reusable shopping bags, water bottles, containers, straws etc to replace plastic alternatives.
