Say, "No Thank" to plastic bags at the store, carry my own tupperware for restaurant leftovers, choose a fork over disposable chopsticks, and to wrap my presents without any paper! #green09

The BEST and most certain way for anyone or any organization to go (#green09)"green" or is to go VEGETARIAN. So many studies have proven how the [dead animal] AKA the "meat" industry uses/wastes so many natural resources and pollutes the environment. Why

I'll avoid driving my car whenever possible. I'll avoid driving in the GGPark to cut through it illegally. I'll avoid parking in that giant parking fiasco in the GGPark.

I resolve not to drive. Most especially, I resolve not to drive in Golden Gate Park, thereby not exposing pedestrians, picnickers and museum-goers to tailpipe emissions and not putting their lives at risk from a two-ton piece of steel accelerating over t

ride my bike everywhere including to the park, even though they built an 800 car garage that invites people to drive more.

Please CalAcademy, you have done such a good job with designing a green building. Match that commitment by selling green products in your store. I was appalled at the junk and trinkets for sale to children that will likely end up as landfill. Most everyth

I prefer to use the word "Intention" rather than resolution, as it seems to keep me moving forward. Last week I purchased a new Energy Star refrigerator that is going to cost only $41 a year to operate ( my old one was from 1991 and I know it cost a lot m

Refuse ridiculous offers of plastic bottled water since it takes about 2 oz of oil to produce and deliver a single bottle and San Francisco has the best tap water in the world - straight from Yosemite!
