The food that we eat creates a big carbon footprint, even if you only eat produce. For example, first the product has to be grown, which can sometimes include using harmful chemicals and pesticides. Then our food is often shipped a significant distance. Regularly, we transport food before it’s ripe, or it would be rotten by the time it got to you. Then there’s the carbon footprint of the store you buy the food at, and the waste that’s created if no one buys it. Last, going to the store is part of your carbon footprint if you drive.

You jot down a long list of climate-conscious goals while you’re feeling motivated and optimistic. This time you’re really going to do it. You arm yourself with a reusable bag and a habit tracker and dive right in.

But after only a couple of weeks, you start getting worn out. Eventually, you find yourself going back to your old habits.

Does this sound familiar? If so, you’re not alone. Most New Year’s Resolutions last an average of 36 days. However, this doesn’t mean you should give up on your plans! Working to make  sustainable changes in your life is a critical goal — and it’s completely doable.

Making Your Goals More Sustainable

When you’re passionate about a cause, it’s easy to put too much pressure on yourself. That’s why we have some psychology-based tips to help you reach your goals.

  1. Choose one or two goals to focus on at a time
  2. Wait two or three weeks before adding new goals
  3. Check in on your progress daily and weekly
  4. Forgive yourself when you slip up — see it as a learning experience
  5. Don’t wait for a new day, week, or month to start again

When you work on sustainable living gradually, it’s easier to make your new habits stick. To help you get started, we have 19 simple, sustainable ideas for the New Year. Add one or two to your routine and let us know how it goes!
