2008 Environmental Goals for My Family by naturaldsm

I’ve decided to set some environmental goals for our family for this year. I think we do a good job of being environmentally conscious and making positive choices for our health and the environment, but there are clearly (as always) areas where we could do better. For 2008, I’ve chosen to specifically focus on further reducing the amount of waste we contribute to landfills and on reducing our exposure to plastics.

I’ll be doing some research over the next month or so about these topics, and will be posting what I find here. I’m hoping to provide readers with research, information, and useful links, and well as updates on our journey. Hopefully, by this time next year, our family will have made some major changes for the better!

You know, I do vaguely remember reading books… lol… Now I’m obsessively knitting in advance of Craft Saturday, but I have high hopes for sitting down with actual books after this weekend. I’ll have to see if the library has it.
