Green Resolutions - Keep Them Growing!

In celebration of Earth Day 2009, we challenged our readers to make a simple green resolution, and boy did you deliver. Your overwhelming response was truly inspiring; thousands of you shared both green resolutions and tips on how to lead a cleaner, greener, more sustainable lifestyle. Your responses covered everything from biking to work to reducing water waste to composting to reusing shopping bags to teaching children and co-workers the importance of recycling. All of these simple changes added together can and will go a long way towards greening our planet. As promised, we randomly selected one of you as the winner of a FEED100 Bag and $25 gift card. And the winner is:
Kim Taylor Knight: I have been riding my bike to work for the past month, and I will continue, but my real earth day resolution, is to waste less and to compost all organic scaps for my garden this year. I am planting arugula, tomatoes and herbs for a start at becoming a more sustainable me!
Now that Earth Month is over, we’d love to hear your ideas on how to keep these green resolutions growing throughout the year. How could your resolutions help inspire and challenge other Whole Foods Market customers to make simple green changes in their own lives?
