My sustainability resolutions

Over two months of 2010 have already gone by but there is still plenty of time to start a list of resolutions.

This year I pledge to reduce my garbage output. Right now, as a family, we put out one full bag a week of burnables and plastics each per week. When David Suzuki is said to put out only one bag a month there is definitely room for improvement by myself and everyone.

My second pledge is to start composting. Our kitchen garden would be complete if we can just make our own compost. We use commercially bought chicken manure as fertiliser right now. And learning to compost would also help my cause in achieving my first resolution.
