Enhance your appreciation of the natural world and reinforce your drive to protect nature. Head outside for your recreation activities. Visit a nearby wildlife refuge or park. Participate in local environmental restoration or cleanup projects. All the while, saving money, reducing your carbon footprint, and combining exercise with play (not to mention, increased time outdoors leads to health benefits).

10. Share your resolution for a sustainable world

Now that you’ve selected a resolution for a sustainable world, speak up about it and pass it on! Your social networks are valuable resources to help in the journey.

Tell your family and friends over social media or over coffee. Speak up at your school or workplace about your commitment. Tell the businesses you patronize about your goal for the year and ask how they can help you get there. Encourage people to follow suit and allow that goal to ripple throughout your social network.
