Easy Green Things To Do This Month...January 2013...

I thought I'd do a round up of a couple of easy eco actions each month, just little online actions, interesting reads or things you can do in your daily life...

Sign Friends of the Earth's online petitions to help bees and to ask for investvent in clean energy.

Sign Greenpeace's online petition to protect the North Pole.

Recycle your Christmas cards - if you haven't got round to it already you can take your cards to Marks and Spencers until 31st January and for every 1000 cards M&S receive a tree will be planted by the Woodland Trust.  

Check out Climate Revolution, endorsed by Lush and Vivienne Westwood sign up for email updates and have a read of their blog.

Take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch organised by the RSPB to help discover the state of UK birdy-wildlife.  Watch the birds in your garden or local park for an hour sometime on the weekend of 26th-27th January then record your findings online.

Love Food Hate Waste have a list of food waste related new year's resolutions, in case you need a push in the right direction!

Signatures are still needed for the online petition to end fishing discards. Even though the TV hype has finished the work is still going on and changes are being promised. (Suggested by Dreamer - I don't eat fish, but if you do then for goodness sake don't waste it before it even gets to the plate!)

The Vegan Society offers support, info and advice to those thinking about going vegan... take a vegan pledge for 7 days, 2 weeks or 1 month, might be a nice new years resolution. (Suggested by Kay)

If you have any ideas to be added to this months list, then let me know in the comments and if I like it, I'll add it!  And feel free to share any of this info (or the whole post) wherever and with whoever you like!
