This week we asked: What do your green resolutions look like?
(Read more about going green in this week’s articles on the theme.)
From Jenn: No more throwaway water bottles (but LOTS more water!)
Jenn blogs at Monkey Butt Junction.
From Carrie: Move over Melissa and Doug, Carrie and Winn have resolved to be Green without spending Green.
Carrie is the Director of her dance studio, The School of Ballet Arts in Boston, and the proud mom of Winn, who has her ever striving to be and stay green.
Lani says, “A year ago our town resolved to be more green with the institution of a Single Stream Recycle Program, which we love! Each home was given a 64 gallon trash bin and a 96 gallon recycle bin. That’s right the recycle bin is bigger – the way it should be! Sometimes we don’t even put trash out, just recycle.”
The city also has a 100kw wind turbine that helps power the Middle School.

From Lauren: “Two-year-old Mikko thought my new DivaCup was cool, too! Since then, I’ve switched to completely reusable menstrual products, including an assortment of cloth pads as well, and I love it. I can’t believe I didn’t go green sooner!”

Christine at African Babies Don’t Cry has grown this little Avocado Pear tree from seed, and hopes to carry on expanding her garden to provide much more this year.
