3 New Year’s resolutions worth sticking to
Ahh, January. ‘Tis the season for exercise and healthy eating and “new year, new me” selfies. If you’re already ready to give up on your New Year’s resolution, try out one (or all) of these easy world-changing goals and make 2018 the year of Marc making!
1. Conserve energy at home.
An easy first step to saving the world can start in the comfort of your own home. You probably already know that you can save 200 gallons of water per month just by shutting off the faucet while you brush your teeth. But if you’re ready to take that a step further, low-flow toilets and showerheads can help conserve water too. And, to make things a little easier on your energy bill and the earth, unplug electronics and appliances when they’re not in use and make the switch to LED light bulbs.
Or, you know, in conjunction with all these things, you could also buy a blue pair of Marc Skid undies.
2. Get the most out of your nutrition.
Amp up your diet with the ANDI (Aggregate Nutrient Density Index). The scale ranks foods by their micronutrient density, with the idea being that more nutrient-dense foods make you feel fuller with fewer calories. Kale scores an incredible 1000, while soda is a low 1.
As you start to make better choices for your body, you might want to share the health. Picking out a pair of red Marc Skid underwear donates $4 to the charity of your choice that helps cure the world with medications, vaccinations and overall healthcare.
3. Grow into a new healthy habit.
Start planning now for your new summer hobby: square foot gardening. Even if you only have a small space, you can start sustainably feeding yourself using this technique. Simply split whatever area you have (the original recommendation is 4ft x 4ft) into smaller, square foot sections. You can reap the same harvest as a much larger garden using just 20% of the space, 10% of the water and at about half the cost. Tastes like success.
But in the meantime, while you’re anxiously awaiting spring, check out a green pair of Marc Skid underwear that will also help feed the world.
