Years ago I began minimizing my footprint by being a smarter consumer. I reduced my wardrobe, borrowed books from the library instead of purchasing so many (I love to read), ate homemade meals and canned. Lately I feel like I've fallen out of that practice with daily trips to Starbucks (and not always bringing reusable cups), jumping into the vehicle and driving instead of walking (which is also reducing my physical activity), and purchasing extra art supplies instead of using what I have first. So, I am making a public declaration to be wiser and kinder to the environment. In the past I found that sharing my goals online helps me to keep myself accountable so this tends to work well for me. Fingers crossed!
