Congratulations! You’ve made it through a full year of waking up, learning, and deciding to live a more eco-friendly life. The steps you’ve taken will help reduce your carbon footprint and lower the chances of runaway climate change.
So what’s next? That’s a great question. There is always more that can be done, more to be learned, more changes you can make in your everyday lives. A first step might be to review all the weeks to see if there’s something that you could revisit; maybe something that didn’t stick so well the first time around. You can revisit all 52 ideas on this website. And I’ll have more information and goodies coming in the next year to deepen each idea and topic so make sure to visit regularly!
After that, please share this with friends and family! Anyone can start their 52 Ways to be Green journey at any time by visiting http://www.52togreen.com/subscribe.
Next up, make sure that your changes stick. It’s easy to slip back into old habits so make sure to stay true to yourself and remember why making these changes really matters. Try keeping a journal or blog to track your progress and personal changes. It might inspire others as well!
Finally, keep learning! There are so many resources out there for people who are looking to learn more about the challenges we are currently facing like climate change, peak oil, economic instability, and the plastic crisis. I’ve provided a number of resources throughout the year but Google is a great resource for learning about specific topics that might interest you.
And on that note, I’d love some feedback on how you felt about the 52 Ways to be Green ideas and changes. Did you enjoy following along? Did it feel too daunting or scary? Are there some key topics that I’ve left out? You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I’d be extremely grateful for your time and effort!
Thank you so much for participating in this journey and I hope that there have been some lasting changes that will help you live your life more lightly, and more richly.
