ENVIRONMENTALLY-MINDED bosses at the World Wildlife Fund have come up with an alternative list of New Year resolutions to help save the planet.
They range from eating a sustainable diet to flying less often and installing loft insulation.
Now the charity is suggesting that other people also sign up for “one or two” of their resolutions.
A spokesman said: “The truth is in the UK we use far more than our fair share of the world’s natural resources, not to mention generating way too much climate-changing CO² from our often-wasteful use of energy and our food choices. By opting for even one or two of these planet-friendly New Year resolutions, we can all reduce our environmental impact in 2012 and feel better in the process.”
Its full list of resolutions reads: eat a healthy sustainable diet that cuts carbon emissions, set a target to cut carbon use and monitor progress, choose good wood and help save rainforests, support sustainable fish, campaign against climate change, install loft insulation, reduce car use, fly less, use recycling schemes and choose energy efficient appliances.
CUSTOMERS of Marks & Spencer can help the Woodland Trust turn festive waste into woodland by recycling old cards.
Until January 31, Christmas card recycling bins will be placed in more than 300 M&S stores. They will plant one tree with the Woodland Trust for every 1,000 Christmas cards brought into store, with the aim of saving more than 10m cards from the rubbish bin this year, or 10,000 new trees.
