My suggestion for 2018 is to get a milkman! This reduces your plastic waste by about half with no trouble at all. The milk delivered will be a bit more expensive, but if you can afford to do this, consider the extra as a donation to environmental causes.
I want to re-check just how much I really need in savings and put any surplus into gifts to charities concerned with environment, sustainability and peace-building. I prefer to start close to the bottom of the food chain so insects and amphibians will take priority. Then I will look at all aspects of savings, investments and banking that I still feel I need and double-check that they are environmentally positive and ethical. I will also look at my stock of garden chemicals and safely dispose of any that are harmful or not necessary. These are 2 new things I will be doing in 2018.
Dear Green Christian, Your suggestions are good but not sufficiently extensive. Here are a few more : - 1. Buy nothing new for a year except of course consumables such as food - it has been done! 2. Walk everywhere under one mile. 3. Use e mail instead of paper. 4. Turn the heating off except in very cold weather. 5. Do not use any social media as it is corroding. etc.etc.
