Go Green in 2018!

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on December 18, 2017

Make 2018 the greenest year yet! Make the following resolutions for New Year’s (or create your own!) to reduce your environmental impact. Share your new sustainable choices with friends and family to inspire them to make changes too!



AVOID TOXINS IN YOUR HOME

Switch to green cleaning products, which are safer for you, your children and your pets.

LEARN MORE ABOUT YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Attend a composting or rain barrel workshop and/or enjoy PRC’s “Wild and Scenic Film Fest” to learn how everyday decisions impact the environment.

BECOME A MORE SAVVY CONSUMER

Think about your purchases and how they impact the environment.  Ask questions such as:  Do I “need” this item?  Can I purchase a comparable item with less packaging?  Is a refurbished option available?

MAKE “REUSE” A HOUSEHOLD WORD

Whether you find a new way to use something you already own or you make a commitment to donating items you no longer need, “reuse” makes lasting environmental, social and economic impacts.  Live by the principle throughout the year – and attend PRC’s annual “ReuseFest” on Earth Day.

SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS

You don’t need to become an environmental crusader…but by sharing stories about how you consider your environment in daily life, you help others to recognize the many available opportunities.  Take advantage of spending time with friends by volunteering together for an environmental project or event.
