As you know, tomorrow is Earth Day and I'm especially looking forward to it this year because with the increased blog coverage on this important day, I'm bound to find a bunch of new eco-friendly boutiques, designers, and tips to add to my little bag of tricks. Tomorrow I'll be posting a list of online shops that are both eco-friendly and affordable because I'm a true believer that everyone regardless of how small a budget you live on can afford quality earth friendly products. Today though, I'd like to share some good intentions from Citizen Scholar's "I've been meaning to series."
Some of my personal goals this year include:
- Buy more vintage, thrifted, upcycled, and handmade products.
-Use my eco-friendly totes each and every time I go shopping (I have a tendency to forget these at home).
-Include more posts with the "Do More with Your Money" label.
-actively support local farmers through 'Locally Grown' program here in Athens.
-Budget and save for splurges on eco-friendly/ethically conscious products. I don't want to surround myself with more stuff because it's cheap. I'd rather have fewer, quality items that will last and reduce my personal waste. A good example of this is my recent splurge on these shoes.
So now that I've shared some goals, I'd love to hear yours. What are you intentions for reducing your carbon footprint this year? The goals needn't be extreme. I'd love to hear even the smallest eco-conscious goals!
