1 small change a month

If someone was to tell you that they wanted to start living an eco friendly lifestyle but that they were only willing to make 1 small change a month what would you tell them?

I have given this scenario some serious thought and have come up with a top 12 list to help them through the first year.

  1. Read and learn why it is important to make these changes.

  2. Use reusable bags instead of paper or plastic bags

  3. Don’t buy bottled water instead buy reusable water bottles

  4. Pack a reusable lunch

  5. Buy organic locally grown foods

  6. Recycle

  7. Switch to cloth napkins

  8. Reduce your purchases

  9. Start using natural cleaners

  10. Use reusable coffee mugs

  11. Switch to natural personal products (toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc)

  12. Switch to LED lights

What would your list look like?

Mine would be very similar. I'd include buying from a CSA or Farm Market, giving up wrapping paper, and cooking from scratch.

Those are good ones Daisy! Especially the giving up wrapping paper one. I am trying to get better on the cooking one ;-)
