Green Your Diet: Tip the Scale in Earth's Favor

Green bathroom scaleHappy 2012! Losing weight is a wildly popular New Year’s resolution. With that in mind, this week’s tips will help you slim down — the green way.

Tip #1: Tip the scale in Earth’s favor.

Tool number one you'll need while managing your weight loss is a bathroom scale. While this may not strike you as being a product category with many eco-friendly options, they do exist: Whynter makes a bamboo scale, and Tanita's got a solar-powered one that's made from biodegradable plastic. It wouldn't be a bad idea to invest in a kitchen scale too, for greater certainty about portion size; Salter’s bamboo version is an eco-minded choice.

Tip #2: Think vegetarian.

Tip #3: Pile less on.

Tell us: How do you plan to green your eating habits in 2012?
