Setting a sustainability goal can be a great way to make a positive change in the new year. If typical New Year’s resolutions are often intimidating or short-lived, try thinking of small and specific goals that are more attainable.
For example, instead of cutting out meat completely, you might try smaller goals such as one vegetarian day a week.
The key to a successful sustainable goal is to make it feasible and accessible within your lifestyle.
By making small swaps and substitutions each week, you can end the year more sustainably than how you started in the beginning.
