Come February, plenty of well-intentioned New Year’s resolutions are abandoned in the midst of hectic daily living. But if you want to make a sustainable change this year, EarthShare wants to help! 

Pick one (or more) of the resolutions below and we’ll follow up with you throughout the year to see how it’s going. If you have a particularly compelling story, we might even feature it on our website!

Some tips on keeping resolutions: pick one you really want to do, write down a plan for achieving it, and tell someone else who will hold you accountable.

We’ve organized some possible green resolutions below by level of difficulty. If there’s a resolution you want to try that isn’t on the list, or don’t know how to go about tackling a resolution you’ve chosen, tell us about it in the comments section. We’ll do our best to help you find the information you need.

So pick a resolution and see what a positive difference you can make this year!
