LIGHTHOUSE POINT, Fla., Dec. 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- It's that time of year we announce our new goals to ring in 2011. We joke with friends and family about resolutions we plan to honor but we just don't intend to keep. We rarely use the word "resolutions" in mid-January let alone mid-June. Online eco-friendly retailer World of Green is taking a different approach in hopes to change that mindset by sharing 31 Daily Green Tips & Giveaways that give people tangible ways to make a permanent change in 2011. "We wanted to motivate people to make a green resolution that will directly impact the environment because most people will make a change if it's easy, affects something beyond themselves, and feels good," says Roberta Modena, founder and CEO of World of Green.
Throughout the month of January, World of Green will announce a different green living tip along with a corresponding eco-friendly product giveaway on their website www.worldofgreen.com, Facebook and Twitter. These green living tips will give people real solutions on how to improve their own health and the health of the planet. In terms of weight-loss goals which are on everyone's mind, World of Green has partnered with organic, whole food nutrition leader Garden of Life to showcase fucoTHIN®, a safe, non-stimulant, and effective weight loss supplement made from seaweed, a staple in many Asian diets. This clinically-researched fat burner is featured in the "Weigh in on This" tip on January 2nd along with effective weight loss strategies. Plus, one lucky winner will win a year's supply of fucoTHIN® on January 31st to culminate the giveaway.
Other tips, like "Banish BPA" remind people to buy plastics, like storage containers, free of toxic chemicals bisphenol-A and phthalates, which are linked to a higher incidence of heart disease, diabetes and liver abnormalities in adults and hormone development problems in children. World of Green will give away a set of safe, lead-free, BPA-free containers from CitizenPip, which offers safe plastic containers which are free of BPA & phthalates.
Other tips address lifestyle changes that people should be doing anyway, but just need reminded like "Get Wise on Water" – Having difficulty meeting the "8 x 8 rule" of drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day for proper health? If you didn't get a reusable drinking bottle from Santa this year, we suggest a "filtered" one. Filtered water bottles are the best investment in 2011 because it's much cheaper than buying bottled water or investing in a water purifier, it reduces recycling, and it travels.
"Sustainable living is not just about doing things healthy for the environment, it's about improving our own personal health and sustaining that so we become a healthier population and a healthier nation. Living green and living healthy go hand in hand," says Modena. For the complete list of "31Daily Green Living Tips & Giveaways" visit www.worldofgreen.com .
