In our April issue (which hits newsstands March 14), we're using Earth Day as an excuse to tackle some ambitious green changes. You know, the ones you've talked about for years but haven't gotten around to because you don't have the time, haven't made the effort, or simply don't know where to start.
Pick up the April issue (or check out the story online) for tips on how to make things happen: Things like bringing fresh food to your kids' schools, reducing your carbon footprint, and getting your office to recycle, to name a few. You can even see how Editor-in-Chief Alex Postman painted her Brooklyn brownstone white (well, the rooftop anyway) and beautified her block.
So what's next on your list? Leave your Earth Day pledge here: Putting it in writing is half the battle, and perhaps you'll inspire others to do the same! And 10 pledgers will be chosen at random to win our "This Is the Year I'll" t-shirts.

TELL US! "This is the year I'll ..."
Check out Better for Grown Ups Brand - lots of reusable products, from tissues, cotton rounds, etc (and most of them come in handy reusable dispenser boxes, so it doesn't involve a whole new habit). Apparently, 56 tons of trash are thrown out each year per person in the U.S. - this is a great place to start reducing that footprint!
