Green New Year's Resolutions: Volunteer More

Volunteer more It’s almost midnight — do you know where your resolutions are? If not, worry not: We’ve got a few suggestions lined up for you this week. While in years past, we provided you with specific eco-acts to focus on, for 2011, we’re zooming out a bit to consider more community-based ideas.

Tip #2: Volunteer More

It’s been scientifically proven that people who volunteer are happier, healthier, and live longer. It just takes a few weeks for you — and your community — to start reaping those benefits, so start thinking about which cause you’d enjoy donating your time to in 2011. Perhaps you’d be good at taking inner-city kids into the wild, spending time with animals, or cleaning a beach or river. Not sure where to start? Contact your local Sierra Club chapter for green opportunities, or find more general volunteering resources at Serve.gov.

Tell us: What’s your favorite volunteer activity?
