It’s been great reading your comments and seeing what kinds of goals we all have for 2011 to clean up and green various parts of our lifestyle.
Looking back at both part one and part two, I see lots of comments about wanting to eat more local, grow a garden and make small personal changes, like with personal care products and personal hygiene. It seems like many readers are also interested in learning more about green cleaners and using less plastic. In the parenting realm, we had some great discussion this week about goals to simplify kids’ toys and explore more natural remedies.
I’m excited to talk more about these issues this year and I hope you’ll be encouraged to keep striving toward your own green goals. Last year, Katie checked back in on how things were going with goals (Part 1 and Part 2) and we’ll be sure to do that again this year in a few months and throughout the year on Facebook and Twitter.
For my family, I hope to continue moving towards a more traditional, real-foods diet (more on this next week!) made up of more locally grown food.
As we look forward to a greener 2011, let’s also take a minute to reflect on the positive changes we’ve already made for ourselves and our family.
In the last couple of years, my family has been making baby steps toward a more sustainable, simple lifestyle, as I’ve told you about before. We love our CSA and look forward to more local produce in our box every two weeks. That has been one of the most impactful changes our family has made (rather than supermarket produce shopping), along with simplifying our personal care products and routine.
What goals have you met in the last couple of years as you baby-step your way towards a greener, safer, more eco-friendly lifestyle?
