Change one wasteful habit.
We're all probably a little more wasteful than we'd like to be, whether it's the disposable produce bags we stuff inside our eco-friendly canvas shopping totes, or the perfectly good veggies we buy, with the best of intentions, and then send to the landfill a week or two later after failing to find time to cook.
Living more consciously can start with changing just one habit. Some suggestions:
* Buy one produce item on every shopping trip that's perfectly edible, but has cosmetic imperfections
* Change out one disposable household item for a reusable equivalent -- like swapping paper towels for absorbent cotton cloths, or trading in disposable ink pens for lasting models refilled with sustainably produced inks
* Learn a few simple mending tricks to keep clothes wearable past their first ripped seam or lost button
* Start composting
* Grow one food item you love at home
And of course, there's no need to stop at changing just one habit. Maybe one per month, or, for the ambitious, a weekly small change? Share your Story!
