1-800-Recycling.com, an interactive nationwide website dedicated to enhancing and democratizing the consumer recycling experience, has published the first of several articles on its blog sharing its writers’ personal new year’s resolutions, and perhaps not surprisingly, they are all environment-related.
The first article of the series, by 1-800-Recycling.com writer Joey Papa, is titled “My Green Resolutions” (http://1800recycling.com/2010/01/green-resolutions/) and shares Papa’s own personal resolutions to be live greener for himself and his growing family. The piece is also designed to inspire its readers to follow suit with their own earth-friendly resolutions for 2010. Papa’s include eating organic and natural foods, reusing unwanted food, and doing a better job conserving everyday items including everything from water and electricity to paper cups from the local Starbucks.
Over the next several days, other 1-800-Recycling.com writers will share their own personal new year’s resolutions.
“1-800-Recycling.com was designed to help people achieve their recycling goals and live greener lifestyles overall,” said John S. Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “As this new year kicks off and people are trying to set goals for more sustainable and planet-friendly lifestyles, it seemed a perfect time to showcase not just a selection of suggestions, but the actual resolutions made by our writers, to show our readers that we practice what we preach and that these modest lifestyle changes are very much achievable and hugely rewarding.”
