As December draws to a close, hopes for 2021 rise and turn into new year resolutions. What changes do you want to make? Sustainable Melrose wants to hear your goals for a healthier, carbon free lifestyle. The ten member coalition is launching #GreenYear21. Post your resolution to live more earth-friendly on social media.
As Melrose creates its strategy to be carbon neutral or “net zero” by 2050, it’s clear that individual actions are essential to meeting these goals. Our homes, our transportation, our food combined with state and local government choices joined together are key to success.
Not sure where to start? Choose one resolution that is achievable and stick with it. Here’s a few ideas. You can switch to renewable electricity, reduce the miles on your car in 2021, eat a more plant-based diet, eliminate single use plastics, advocate for policies that are eco-friendly.
Share your #GreenYear21 resolution on your favorite social media network. Don’t forget to include the hashtag on your photo and caption. Together, we’ll make 2021 our healthiest, energy efficient year yet.
