This week was back to the hustle and grind for most of us. Hope it was a great start to your new year. I am not good at New Year resolutions so I never make them. However, I have been thinking of how I can make this year better. If 2018 has taught me anything, it’s that we need to take better care of our environment and be mindful of our way of life. So, this year I am going to be more aware of my carbon footprint. I am going to take personal responsibility for my impact on the planet. No more finger pointing, no more blame game, no more waiting for the world to change or waiting on others to take action for a sustainable future.
It starts with me. By making some small changes like:
- Carrying my own shopping bags and water bottle
- Composting my food scraps
- Upcycling and recycling more
- Cooking from scratch and buying local ingredients
- Walking more or taking public transportation
Doing something – even if it seems small and inconsequential – is better than doing nothing.
I am proud to share my first DIY upcycle project I found on the Oui Yoplait website.
Have you thought about how you are going to make 2019 different? If you have any upcycle or DIY repurposing ideas, please share in the comments below. I would love to learn a new craft. Thank you
