    I am a student at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, and I live 5 miles from campus. I ride a bike almost all the time, but this year I am resolving to quit driving entirely and rely solely on my bike to get around. This will involve consolidating trips, managing my time, and good health to enable me to still get everything I need done, but I am optomistic. Any destination within 10 miles one way is doable on a bike for me, and possibly even farther. For any trips further than that or needing a vehicle for transporting goods (this does not include grocery shopping, which I can do on a bike), I will carpool or use public transportation, consolidate the trip to include other nearby locations I might need to go to, and make a careful decision as to whether or not the trip is necessary and beneficial. Rain and snow do not stop me from riding, I am blessed with an able body and will continue to use it to it’s full capabilities. Happy cycling to all!

    My Green Resolution is to fight student apathy on my campus at Northern Arizona University. Over the past few decades, student apathy towards all issues (especially green issues) has taken over like a plague. So how do we fight this? We must truly be the change we wish to see in the world. My resolution is to fight student apathy one day at a time and one student at a time – truly grassroots. Every day I will complete one task that eliminates my own apathy towards green issues on campus, and more importantly attempts to eliminate the apathy of other students on campus. The idea is that my daily task will create and inspire change on campus and ALSO inspire change in one other student on campus. And part of that inspiration is that the newly inspired student is so inspired that they as well feel obliged to inspire other students by completing one green issue task each day themselves – and so on. In this way a new plague will spread over campus – a new plague that will end student apathy concerning green issues (and hopefully many others) forever. We must be creative in this. Here is one example: “Change your Trash – Change the World Flyer.” This flyer will be put up to attract a student/students to help put signs on trash cans around campus that read simply: “Landfill Waste.” Surprisingly students think twice about recycling vs. trash when reading the word “Landfill” instead of simply “Trash” on a trash bin. My goal is to inspire one student about one issue everyday. This is my green resolution.

    I attend UC Davis and am the witness to one of the greenest cities ever. My resolution will be to reduce my carbon footprint by using recyclable and biodegradable products. I have already incorporated this greener mindset by eating at the school’s coffee house where they serve the food in biodegradable trays. At supermarkets I either carry my i4C campaign grocery bag or ask for paper instead of plastic. Instead of going out to eat, I have started cooking all my meals at home to prevent the usage of plastic to-go boxes. I believe that taking these small steps to reduce my carbon footprint will definitely create an effect for the Earth. Less bags and plastic will mean less waste and an increased survival rate for our wildlife. Our efforts should go into using products that can be recycled or reused. Not only do using these recycled products help the air become cleaner but it also protects our animals. Our marine life will not be entangled in our plastic and trash. Plastics have essentially three places to go: our air, our water, or our land. Our air will become convoluted, our marine life will diminish and if plastic is burned, toxins will be released into our respiratory systems. I believe my actions though minimal can make a big contribution to the earth. If each person stops accepting plastic bags, retailers will soon realize the need to switch to paper or recyclable materials. All it takes is one person to make a difference in our children’s lives. If all of us start cutting back on our polluting and start minimizing our carbon footprint, we can finally live in a clean green world.
