It’s time to start 2011 off on the right foot by setting New Year’s resolutions. This year my family decided to make green resolutions together for new year – resolving to things that we can do that will not only have a positive impact on the environment but also on our family relationship as well. Read on to find six resolution ideas that you may want to make this year with your family, or consider them inspiration for making your own.
1. Eat Together – Go Organic
If your family doesn’t already eat dinner together, every single night – I highly suggest adding this to the top of your green family resolutions list. Eating together as a family, creates a bond that lasts a lifetime. By adding more organic, plant-based meals to your menu in 2011, you will also have a positive impact on the environment. Chances are, if your family is eating healthy meals together every day, many of your other New Year’s resolutions will just fall into place.
2. Start a Family Green Book Club
Reading together as a family is another great way to bond. Taking the time to slow down at the end of each day to share stories of the environment and life on our planet is a great way to start families talking. And talking is the first step to making the changes necessary to have a positive impact on the environment. Not to mention that sharing stories opens the path of communication between family members.
