Green Resolutions

first_imgThe new year is a great time to pick up a few habits that will help build a greener future for the planet, but new habits can be hard to maintain.Whether they pertain to exercise, finances or green living, resolutions are easier to keep when they begin with small changes, said Pamela Turner, an associate professor and Cooperative Extension housing specialist with the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences.“Making a large change — like going completely plastic-free — can be hard to take on because they’re such extreme changes,” Turner said. “Like anything else, the best way to build a more sustainable household is to start with small steps that you can maintain.”There are lots of small changes that a family can make to lessen their footprint on the environment. Here are 10 steps that Turner recommends:Stop buying bottled water.Make a habit of keeping your reusable bags in the car so you never end up at the store without them.Buy your family members reusable straws with cleaning brushes.Start using cloth napkins and cloth kitchen towels; save the paper towels and paper napkins.Take your own containers with you to restaurants to carry out leftovers.Bring cloth produce bags with you to the grocery store.Become a clean recycler; clean all containers before putting them in the recycling bin.Eat at home or brown bag whenever you can. Eating out generates more waste from unnecessary packaging.Borrow or rent large items and tools that you may not use very often.Swap clothes with friends or buy used clothing when you need to refresh your look.“The best thing to do is just pick two or three changes and try to stick with them,” Turner said. “The most important thing is that you move forward with what you can do and not compare yourself to others. It isn’t a competition.”For more tips of living a greener life, visit UGA Extension’s UGA Greenway at UGAgreenway.org.

Istria achieved a historically record June

first_imgThe Tourist Board of the Istrian County is especially proud to announce that Istria will realize more than 4 million overnight stays for the first time in June. Last year, Istria realized 3 million overnight stays in June, so that this year’s result in June will be almost 37 percent stronger, which in concrete figures means more than a million overnight stays for the month of June alone.With such figures before and after the season they look much better and after many years of systematic work, excellent cooperation between the private and public sector, joint work of all stakeholders in preparing the tourist season and constantly improving the living conditions of our guests, we obviously return the effort. – point out from the Tourist Board of the Istrian CountyIstria thus proves that it is a well-organized and organized tourist destination, and a large role in the whole story is played by the private sector which has designed a very high quality offer with the affected price and invested significantly in raising the quality of accommodation and organizing large TOP events such as: Swatch Beach Volleyball Major Series, Open Air Festival, Beach Polo in Rovinj, Sea Star Festival in Umag, Rise Up Festival in Porec and many others that in the pre- and post-season become a motive for the arrival of many guests and generate quality content in tourist destinations.last_img read more

Distorted laws serve no one and will only create dysfunction in the rental sector,” Ms Mercorella said.“This concerns us because more than 34 per cent of Queenslanders rent and that number is rising, and if we lose investors we may face a rental accommodation shortage.”More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days agoEqually concerning to investors are the flagged changes to the negative gearing provisions from federal Labor.“The negative gearing policy was first announced in 2015 when Sydney and Melbourne house prices were growing at double-digit rates. It was seen as a way to limit investor activity in the market and make way for owner occupiers, creating less competition for stock and, as a result, soften price growth.“However, prices in Sydney and Melbourne are now falling. This raises the question — does the nation really need a policy that is designed to push house prices down? What purpose do these changes serve now?” Ms Mercorella said.last_img read more
