Make Personal Green Promises for the New Year

January 3, 2012

I always like to circle back to see how many Personal Green Promises (PGP) that I made at the beginning of the year did I actually keep. Even if I was successful, I hope to take even bigger steps along the green journey in 2012. How about you? Recycling and reusing some ideas from my last  New Year’s article , I recommend making a new PGP each month. The more you work at it, the more likely you are to turn these promises into habits. From last year: Order reasonable amounts of food when I eat at local restaurants. With no leftovers to take home, there’s no need for to-go Styrofoam containers. A clean plate means less food in the landfill. Done!   And now for 2012: PGP No. 1: Meatless Mondays. We’re mostly meatless at my house, but making this commitment when you know that thousands of other families are doing the same thing provides a sense of worldwide community. Just imagine what it takes to bring one hamburger to your table—from cattle grazing to trucks delivering the products. Eating one fewer burger a week lessens your carbon footprint on so many levels.  PGP No. 2: Quit buying new plastic containers. I’m scouting Beverly Hills estate sales for previously used tins, boxes and bins.  PGP No. 3: Try out NeighborGoods . This Los Angeles-based website is a clearinghouse that provides a safe way to find items to loan out or borrow from neighbors. From its site: Need a ladder? Borrow it from your neighbor. Have a bike collecting dust in your closet? Lend it out and make a new friend. By sharing with your neighbors, you can save money while reducing waste and strengthen your local community in the process. I plugged in “90210” on the site to see who has what in our area, but, alas, I learned from NeighborGoods that, “We just launched in your area! Help us grow by inviting your friends.”  If anyone needs to borrow a wheelbarrow, let me know! PGP No. 3: Keep shopping local! Promoting healthy eating is an ongoing goal of the Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market , as well as Whole Foods Market . “Our Health Starts Here campaign is in full swing with the start of 2012,” Whole Foods Beverly Hills marketing supervisor Ellen Prager said. The initiative includes free classes, support groups, market tours and informative signage—all in support of the chain’s effort to get people eating whole, unprocessed foods, a colorful variety of plants, healthy fats and nutrient-dense items. What are your PGPs for 2012? Share yours in the comments section below. Happy New Year from The Green Files! Be sure to follow Beverly Hills Patch on  Twitter  and “Like” us on  Facebook .

Assemblymember Allen Wants to Fairly Regulate DUI Checkpoints

Assemblymember Allen Wants to Fairly Regulate DUI Checkpoints

(Sacramento) – Right now, there is no uniformity regarding how DUI checkpoints are set up and conducted in the state of California. Many times, sober drivers stopped at a DUI checkpoint, who are cited for unrelated issues, might have their cars impounded by law enforcement. California State Assemblymember Michael Allen (D-Santa Rosa) wants to have a fair, standard protocol for DUI checkpoints, and give unimpaired drivers a chance to keep their cars. That’s why Allen authored Assembly Bill 1389. Learn more in this Assembly Access Video.
