Green Goals for 2009

OK, so I know I am a about a month late with my resolutions for the new year, but better late than never right? I saw a great post about listing our "Green Goals" for 2009 over on Crunchy Domestic Goddess so I thought I would do the same. Alright, here are mine:

  • Buy produce from local farmer's market.
  • Bring reusable bags to ALL stores, not just supermarket.
  • Get my hubby to use organic skincare and personal care products (soap, shampoo, cologne, shaving stuff, etc.).
  • Spend more time outside with the kids.
  • Start taking better care of me (exercise and work on my chocolate addiction).
  • Get some more Glad Rags.
  • Eliminate all High Fructose Corn Syrup foods from our house (95% there!).
  • Start a vegetable garden and plant at least 2 veggies.
  • Get a strawberry pot and plant some strawberries.
  • Put up a clothes line outside to start line drying some things like towels.
  • Pack waste free lunches for my preschooler
So now I want to know what YOUR Green Goals are for this year. You can either list them in a comment or post them on your blog and leave me the link to it so I can add it here.


  1. Great Post! Here are mine:

    1.Curb my paper towel addiction, I did it them I fell off the wagon and I used all the cloths for diaper inserts !

    2. Continue my path to 100% organic - I am about 50% there now for Jason and I , little man gets about 80% organic.

    3. Continue to change over our lightbulbs as they burn out, about 80% there now.

    4.Use my cloth bags everywhere!

    5. Find ways to use non recyclables for other uses.

    6. Be more diligent about recycling, I am good except for right at dinner time with so much chaos I throw away some things that could be recycled every now and then.

  2. wonderful!

    here are some of mine

    1. switch my daughter to cloth diapers full time (we already achieved this goal in january!)

    2. switch my son to cloth diapers/pullups instead of using disposable pullups for bedtime.

    3. remember to bring reusable bags to all stores every time

    4. start weeding out HFCS

  3. These are great. We have been trying to go green for a while but this is great to have other people out there to help come up with some great ideas.
