12 Easy & Sustainable New Year’s Resolutions

12 Easy & Sustainable New Year’s Resolutions

It's the time of year when we start reflecting on the previous year and thinking about the new year ahead. 🎆 I've always struggled with the concept of a New Year's resolution.  Having to choose just one thing to work on for the whole year seems a big decision that, more often than not, doesn't get seen through. 

A few years ago, I decided to do away with the classic New Year's Resolution and go for a New Month's Resolution instead.  The concept pretty much does what it says on the tin...have a new resolution to focus on each month rather than just one for the full year! 🥳  I usually have a vague idea of what I'd like to focus on each month, but leave it flexible to decide at the start of each month and season.  I've found it's a lot less overwhelming to try a resolution for a month and you get to try out different ones! 🙌

We've come up with 12 Sustainable New Year's Resolutions to help you on your quest for an eco-friendly, zero-waste and plastic-free life. ♻ You don't have to do them in order, or all of them, but pick and choose which ones work for you.  Each of the easy New Year's Resolutions can be tailored to your lifestyle and will help you to make positive, eco-friendly changes to reduce your environmental impact. 🌍

Each month we'll be doing a deeper dive into one of the eco-friendly New Year's resolution suggestions with eco-tips and ideas, so make sure you follow us on social media and sign up to our newsletter to ensure you don't miss out! 💚
