I have a few ideas for New Year's Resolutions but which to choose...
Option One - UN-DRIVE, to encourage us to walk to work more often (not just on car-free day), and go for a walk after dinner instead of spreading out in front of NetFlix. This should be good for the waste line!
Option Two - GO WILD!, and go crazy with the native plants we include around the yard. I admit to having a pretty brown thumb when it comes to natives plants, so it will be a learning curve, for sure.
Option Three - GROW A ROW, and dedicate available land to food production. This comes at a time when the city is developing food sustainability policy, so we can help understand food issues while contributing to Edmonton's sustainability.
Option Four - HORDE, the city is talking about reduced rates for low-volume waste collection, so we are considering keeping all our garbage in the garage until Jan 2013 and see how much our little household produces in one year, including what we take to the Reuse Centre. This will mean having to clean out the garage eventually, so even though it means not taking out the garbage, it could be a lot more work that it sounds.
So, help me out. Have you tried any of these? Which will have the biggest positive impact.
VOTE for your choices in the poll on the right!
