2. Eat your greens

Commit to eating more green veggies. Not only do they provide you with vital nutrients, they lower cholesterol, preserve vision, and help with bone health. How about kiwi, spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, arugula, or broccoli? Find interesting ways to incorporate more greens into your smoothies, pasta, and soups.

3. Exercise your green thumb

Spring is just around the corner! Get your yard ready or visit your local community garden to get a jumpstart on making your surroundings beautiful.

4. Conserve our resources

Recommit to taking public transportation or ride sharing, reusable bags, and recycling or upcycling. Even small steps can make a big difference.

5. Ride a Green Bike

SLC GREENbike opens today and Boise GREENbike is now open. Try this easy, and green way, to get around town.
