1. The little things
You know that reusable bag that the cashier at Whole Foods pressured you into buying? The one you foolishly thought you would use all the time, but then suspiciously disappeared? This a great day to pull that bag out. Bask in the wonder of not choosing between paper and plastic. Bathe in the admiring glances of onlookers. Pretty great - right?
Another great thing you can do is to replace all your lightbulbs. This one seems fairly obvious, and I’d actually be a little surprised if you haven’t switched to all fluorescent bulbs by now, but on the off chance you haven’t, today is a great day to do that.
