Anew year will be here in less than a month. Are you thinking about what you want to accomplish? If so, you might want to consider tackling a few sustainable goals in 2020. There’s no denying that climate change is a problem we need to address.
Here’s a look at how you can incorporate sustainability into your New Year’s resolutions.
1. Make An Effort To Learn
Learning is the only way to continue making change. If you feel like you don’t know enough about sustainability, you should expand your knowledge. Learn about the United Nations’ sustainable development goals to see where you can make a difference.
You can also explore individual topics. Try reading more about nuclear energy or agriculture production. It’s one thing to support fixing climate change, and it’s another to read into the science behind what’s happening so you can find tangible solutions.
2. Eat More Plant-Based Meals
A significant change you can make in your personal life is consuming less meat. The world’s current food system causes immense damage to the environment. That’s mainly in part due to the number of resources raising animals takes. Switching to a plant-based diet can help.
It’s OK to start small. Setting aside Mondays for meatless dinners is a good place to begin. You can then incorporate more plants into your diet as you adjust. It won’t be long before you see benefits in your health, too.
