Green and sustainable resolutions for 2013
WASHINGTON — Green Seal has released its "Green and Sustainable Resolutions for 2013," according to a press release.
The resolutions are designed for everyone "to help put protecting the environment and promoting sustainability at the top of our personal and corporate agenda in 2013," the release stated.
"Some of the resolutions may even help make our lives more organized and clutter free. For instance, about 60 percent of all the mail Americans receive is advertising mail — often referred to as junk mail — and half of it is never read,*" said Linda Chipperfield, vice president of marketing and communications for Green Seal.
According to the release, some other resolutions include:
- Replace conventional batteries with rechargeable batteries. Billions of batteries are disposed of every year. Rechargeable batteries save money and help the environment.
- Use cold water in all possible cleaning situations, from washing clothes to cleaning carpets. Many laundry and professional cleaning chemicals are now designed to work in cold water.
- Select only third party-certified green products where available. This certification ensures that a product or service can back up its green claims, ensuring it truly has less impact on our health and environment.
