It’s new year’s resolution season for a lot of us, and whether you’re a resolution maker or not, you can use this time of reflection to make some different choices that are better for the planet and climate and for other people, and better for you, too. Because the most ethical choice and the best financial choice are most often one and the same.
A year ago, I issued the Use It Up Challenge, and lots of you took it on. (Tell me how it went!) But there was part of the challenge that we took on specifically — the nothing new year — that we didn’t fully live up to. So we’re leveling up this year.
We’ve got a new challenge for you! This one requires some context, which we share in detail in the post, but bottom line: the stuff we donate isn’t often ending up where we think. So we’re asking ourselves if donating and recycling are still the best course of action, or whether we should reconsider what we do with the stuff we no longer want. Join us, won’t you?
