After reading Sustainable Dave’s blogs and tips, I feel inspired to make a better effort in my own life.  I am a Recycling Coordinator and I probably generate a fair amount of trash.  We put out our trash every other week, which is not bad, but I think we could do better.

I would like to challenge myself this year to be a better shade of green.

Let’s start with GREEN goals for 2009:

1) Start backyard composting. (I promote this at work and need to start it myself, I plan to blog about my experiences)

2) Use the SIGG. (I half use my SIGG and need to use it fulltime)

3) Ban the use of Styrofoam. (this will be the biggest challenge)

4) Create more art. (anyone have a hot glue gun?)
