Here it is, that time of the year again, the time of the OVER: overeating, overdrinking, overspending.... and it's all good, guilt free! We can take care of dieting, detoxing and saving in the new year!
However in my attempt to be (or at least try to be) an eco friendly person, this pattern is to encourage you and myself to have a more greener life (New Year's resolution? Maybe?).
All sounds good but is common knowledge that trying to be 100% green is almost a mission impossible (ok, maybe not for Tom) and it can be expensive but still within everyone's lifestyle and budget there are lots of things they can be done, for example, things that I do:
Take my NOT plastic bags to the market
Sort out the rubbish for recycling collection
Re-use papers whenever possible (I love to re use wrapping paper)
Buy groceries I know I am going to consume (I HATE throwing away food)
Whenever affordable, I buy biodegradable products
Turn off the tap while brushing
Buy second hand (do we really need everything NEW?)
And my favourite: Mend it rather than replace it!
I hope this inspire you, I imagine lots of people already do most of the above and some have no interest whatsoever. And it's fine, but just think of it as a selfish thing to do: help the earth, help yourself!
Have a Happy Christmas! Don't over do it (maybe a little) Opy
