Resolution for Greener Living



By Great Performances

We’re well into 2019, and as we recover from the holidays—including putting our households back in order—we spoke to GrowNYC’s Communication Specialist, Catherine Crawford, for some ideas for how we can reduce the amount of waste we produce.

Fast fact: In the United States, we pile up 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than over any other similar time period in the year. That’s equivalent to the weight of two million grand pianos, in trash, each week!

GrowNYC has assembled a DIY Guide for Stop ‘N’ Swaps, an easy resource for decluttering, making it easy for sustainably-minded people to host their own community swaps and reduce waste through reuse. They have also assembled a list of sustainability tips.
