Call it what you want: A New Years’ Resolution?Une résolution du Nouvel An?

I am not a fan of New Years’ resolutions. I know myself well enough to realize that I’ve never really followed through with them in the past. I find them intimidating, imposing and weighing. Plus, if I truly want to do something, I don’t need to wait to turn a new year. I just do it then and there!

So, for years, I resisted the temptation to take one on and announce to my entourage that I planned on doing this or that for the rest of the year, because I knew (and they too) that there was a good chance, that I wouldn’t stick to it, that I would break my word… And end up looking like a flake, as most of those that take them on, do.

I entered 2015 with no resolution at all. But I did have one aspiration: To volunteer more.

I jumped on Volunteermatch.org. With a packed, but flexible, work schedule, I looked for anything within the realm of waste – if I found something super cool, I’d find a way to fit it in. But very little choice (only 6 options) came up in my area. I could help serve a hot meal in San Francisco, but the idea of commuting by bus into the city stressed me out. I could pick up extra food and deliver it to local organizations, but I don’t enjoy spending time in the car. I could become an “environmental leader” for a local chapter of The Sierra Club, but I didn’t want to get on their mailing list again: It took me years of calls and letters to get my name off of it in the past.

Nothing seemed to jump out at me as something exiting that would make me leap out of bed or be worth shuffling my schedule around. What I was really hoping to find was some hands-on (“dirty”) work, outside, where I yearned to be; One that does not include a lengthy presentation about waste – I have been frustrated with past engagements when the organizers give a speech while I impatiently wait to get to work… What I was really hoping to find is a litter pick up.

And so I did last week, on my own.

I packed a lunch, two reusable sand bags, a pair of gloves, and the dog’s leash, and headed for one of my favorite beaches in Marin County. Being a Monday, Zizou and I were on our own, well almost…

An Elephant Seal came to encourage us

 

The pieces (mostly plastics) that I picked up that day were so small that it took me two hours to fill up the two bags that I had brought.
This fine point marker was in excellent, usable condition: I gave it to a cashier this week
Once home, I separated the found bits, threw some in our old trash can, others in the recycling bin. My neighbors probably thought my family had a setback, when they saw our trashcan out on the curb for the first time in five years;)Sure, I pick up litter around town and have participated in organized cleanup events before. But this one was different. Getting some much needed solo time, breathing the fresh air, taking in some vitamin D, getting a workout (the hike back to my car, carrying the litter was 1.5 miles and included a steep ravine), walking the dog, getting the honors of the visit of a fury friend, doing good for the environment, and finding a present for my son’s upcoming birthday (LOL)…
…all at once, on my own terms: now that’s a rewarding experience. My kinda volunteering activity.

I can’t wait to go again, and I made room in my schedule to go once a month. Would that be considered a New Year’s resolution, just because I started in January and plan on continuing? Call it what you want; I call it Bliss, an activity that connects what I think, what I say and what I do.

Zizou, very much enjoying the endeavor and hoping for a next time

Did you take on a New Year’s Resolution that makes you happy?

From litter to gift (don’t tell Max, it’s a surprise!)

 

Je ne suis pas fan
des résolutions du Nouvel An. Je me connais suffisamment  pour savoir que je ne les ai jamais vraiment
suivies par le passé. Je les trouve effrayantes, contraignantes et pesantes. De
plus, si je veux vraiment faire quelque chose, je n’ai pas besoin d’attendre
une nouvelle année pour cela. Je le fais, sans attendre.

Ainsi, pendant des années, j’ai résisté à la tentation de prendre quelque
resolution que ce soit et de l’annoncer à mon entourage sachant qu’il y avait
de grandes chances, que je ne la respecterai pas… et finirai bredouille comme
la plupart des personnes qui en prennent.

J’ai donc commencé 2015 sans aucune résolution, mais avec tout de meme une
ambition: faire plus de bénévolat.

J’ai alors foncé sur
Volunteermatch.org. Malgré un emploi du temps serré mais flexible, je cherchais
tout ce qui pouvait se rapporter aux déchets- pensant que si je trouvais
quelque chose de super intéressant, je trouverais un moyen de m’y consacrer. Seulement
peu de choix se sont présentés à moi selon ma region (six plus exactement). J’aurais
par exemple pu servir des repas chauds à San Francisco, mais l’idée de prendre
le bus pour la ville me stressait. J’aurais pu récupérer de la nourriture invendue
et la livrer à des organisations locales, mais je n’aime pas passer mon temps en
voiture. J’aurais pu devenir une “ambassadrice environnementale” pour
l’antenne locale de La Sierra Club, mais je ne voulais pas leur donner mon
adresse : par le passé il m’a fallu des années d’appels et de courriers pour la
faire retirer de leur liste de distribution.

Je cherchais quelque chose qui me ferait bondir hors de mon lit ou valle la
peine de chambouler mon emploi du temps, mais rien de passionnant ne me sautait
aux yeux. Ce que j’espérais vraiment c’était une activité me permettant de mettre
la main à la pâte, sur le terrain où j’aspirais à être. Une activité qui se
passe de préambule- j’ai été frustrée par mes engagements passés lorsque les
organisateurs donnaient de longs discours alors que j’attendais avec impatience
de me mettre au travail … Je me suis rendue compte que ce que j’espérais
réellement trouver, c’était un travail de collecte de déchets.

Je l’ai donc fait de mon propre chef la semaine dernière.

J’ai emballé un déjeuner,
deux sacs en toile réutilisables, une paire de gants, et la laisse du chien, et
je suis partie vers une de mes plages préférées à Marin County. C’était un
lundi, Zizou et moi étions seuls, enfin presque …

Les déchets (en plastique surtout) que j’ai ramassé ce jour-là étaient si
petits qu’il m’a fallu deux heures pour remplir les deux sacs que j’avais
apporté.

De retour à la maison j’ai trié les déchets trouvés, jeté certains dans notre
vieille poubelle, d’autres dans la poubelle de tri. Mes voisins ont probablement
pensé que ma famille et moi avions fait marche arrière quand ils ont vu notre
poubelle grise sur le trottoir -pour la première fois en cinq ans;)

Bien sûr, j’ai déjà ramassé les déchets aux alentours de la ville et participé à
des opérations de nettoyage organisées auparavant. Mais cette fois-ci c’était
différent. Prendre un peu de temps pour soi, respirer un bol d’air frais, faire
le plein de vitamine D, se dégourdir les pattes (5km l’aller retour dont un
ravin escarpé), promener le chien, recevoir la visite d’un compagnon à fourrure
, faire du bien à la planète, et trouver un cadeau pour le prochain
anniversaire de mon fils (LOL) …

… Et c’est ca pour moi : une expérience
enrichissante. Ma façon à moi de faire du
bénévolat.

J’ai hâte de recommencer, et j’ai aménagé mon emploi du temps pour y aller une
fois par mois.

Peut-on considérer cela comme une
résolution du Nouvel An, juste parce que j’ai commencé en Janvier et que je
compte bien continuer? Appelez ca comme vous le voulez, moi j’appelle ça du
Bonheur, une activité qui réunit ce que je pense, ce que je dis et ce que je
fais.

    I love your photos from this adventure. I remember fondly driving up the coastal highway on my honey moon and stopping to see the lion seals on the way up to the redwoods and back, they were so large and when we saw them there were thousands of them sun bathing and making noise it was beautiful and strange. So neat that you saw one.

    And so great that you've found something that connects with your inner message of what you are doing. Cant wait to see more!

    Thanks Ashley. Even though I am used to seeing elephant seals and sea lions, I am still grateful for one each that I spot. I am happy that you were able to have that experience when you visited! They make this region even more special, and this visitor made my experience that much more unique.

    Love this — I too have had a hard time in the past finding the right group volunteering opportunities and feel it's important to find something you really love because it's the only way to stick with it. You've inspired me to take a walk on my local beach this weekend and do a litter cleanup as well. I hope I can find a pair of Ray Bans! 🙂

    Amazing what you were able to salvage. How much actually ended up as literal trash?? Any slim chance it could be put into one of those unipurpose TerraCycle boxes?

    Hi and Thanks for your question.

    I am what you'd call a beach person and being in my element definitely made the cleanup that much more enjoyable.

    I considered itemizing and sharing the contents of my bags in this post, but in effort to write more often, I decided to keep it simple and focus on the experience itself. That said, I plan on sharing the contents of a subsequent pick up.

    I am not aware of the existence of a "unipurpose Terracycle box" near me simply because I do not have a use for one and have not had to look for one to dispose of my household waste. We do not buy food pouches, personal care containers, etc. Since most of the pieces that I collected were made of PETE, HDPE and PP, I put them in the recycling can (my city accepts them). What ended up in the waste bin are items made of composite materials and styrofoam (I found a piece 2.5" tall).

    hi Béa, what a nice initiative! I did a clean-up of the local park a few years ago, with a group. I actually enjoyed it, knowing I was doing something good for the environment. The people passing by were looking strangely at us, but I didn't bother, the park was nice and clean!

    I made a resolution this year after flaking out last year, that was broad but encouraging: Don't be complacent. It inspires me to take initiative to change the things that need it. I finally donated and consigned winter clothes as well as workout clothes. I'm working on using up older cosmetics to make room for products that WORK. If I get tired of the way things are, I don't stay complacent, but plan to make improvements. It's working well so far and little by little I'm working on fixing home, then I can come out to the beach one day and join you. 🙂

  16. Bea Johnson says:

    Oh wouldn't that be fun!
    Your resolution seems fair and it is one that I personally have adopted in my day to day routine: automatic problem solving. If I establish that something does not work quite right or takes too much time out of my day, then I eliminate it or look for a solution or adopt an efficient alternative. This week, I put a metal cap on the end post of our staircase railing: It gets a lot of traffic and I simply got tired of cleaning it and touching up the paint peeling off from use -I have better things to do 😉

    Merci pour ce partage ! Il y a 2 semaines, j'ai vu un article au journal de 13H : une petite commune du Sud de la France organisait avec une centaine de bénévoles le nettoyage de la plage municipale.
    Le maire expliquait, que même avec cette opération de bénévolat, le budget pour nettoyer les plages à la fin de l'hiver avoisinait les 100 000 euros, ce qui était énorme pour une petite commune !

    Cela m'a fait pensé à ta démarche "zero waste", et les critiques qui ont pu être émises en disant que cette démarche était une hérésie économique.

    Au contraire, et on le voit bien avec les déchets sur les plages, et le coût de nettoyage qui s'ensuit que la production de biens plastiques est un "gros trou" dans les budgets municipaux.
    Les 100 000 euros consacrés au nettoyage (location de véhicules, personnel d'entretien…) aurait pu servir à des activités humaines plus sociales. Enfin je dis ça, mais je ne fais que répéter ce que je lis dans "zero waste home" blog et livre, économisons de l'argent, de l'énergie, pour des activités moins polluantes et qui nous procurent plus de bonheur !

    En tout cas, merci pour ce partage et ces jolies photos, il y avait un soleil magnifique !

    I'm not much into the organized volunteer thing, except for school functions…I tackle small projects that need to be done like picking up litter on my own time, no schedule involved. I do this several times a week while taking my walks around the neighborhood and the bike trail adjoining our village. One year, in the winter, with the foliage-free trees exposing years of accumulated trash, I did a one-woman clean-up of a small segment of the bike trail that I walk. Over the course of several days, I collected everything in pots and bags that were already there and took them home to sort for recycling and trash collection. Two years later, this trail segment is looking much better. Anyone can pick up a few pieces of trash when they're out and about. Our kids help us now, too. It teaches them to take pride in their community, even if others feel the need to trash it.

    Something as simple as "living [each] place [we visit] cleaner than we found it", can, as a collective endeavor, have a tremendous effect on litter.

    I used to do this on Albany Hill, as part of a regular walk I took for exercise. Now I mostly pickup batteries as I come across them on the sidewalks and streets. I figure they're just going to end up down the storm drain, washed into San Francisco Bay. You would not believe how many batteries I find.

    I love this, I pickup the trash along the river bank of my favorite swimming spot. I get funny looks and have had people ask me if I really drank six beers already by 9am, I was going back to my car for a bag. But I would rather get the weird looks than glass in mine/my kids feet and see my favorite spot trashed.

    I personally think New Year's Resolution is a little 'light'. Much prefer "LifeLong Obsession". I'm a litter-picker upper in NYC. I'm not afraid of a few germs — I haven't died yet from picking up a stray soda can, or fast food plate or whatever. And it really makes me feel good to see a street without an unsightly piece of trash in the middle of it. I recently wrote about this lifelong obsession of mine here: http://www.WeHateToWaste.com/pick-up-litter/
    Love the fact that you (and many others) clean up beaches. Think of how clean our cities could be if just a fraction of the millions of folks who lived in them cleaned up our cities too!

  36. Bea Johnson says:

    January 27th, 2015 at 12:37 am (#)

    Contrary to what many people think, I personally am not obsessed with litter/trash. Obsessing to me means constantly nitpicking, thinking or dreaming about a subject. Litter does not keep me up at night 😉 My life is filled with other interests. It's not because I chose a Zero Waste lifestyle that I am obsessed with waste. I described the steps to waste free living in my book: I might have been obsessed at first, but today, I am at peace with it. Seeing others people carry a plastic bag for example does not bother me (after-all, I was that person myself not so long ago!), it only encourages me to work harder at spreading my lifestyle and shattering its misconceptions!

    Actually yes, I did take up a New Years resolution. I found your blog in early January, and I decided to take small steps each month this year in hopes of getting closer to a zero waste lifestyle. I signed up for our community compost, bought a Diva Cup, took a big garbage bag and big cardboard box of clothes and other things to Goodwill, and added a bunch of cloth napkins to our registry (getting married in May). Not sure what February will bring, but I'm already feeling happy and motivated. One month is definitely going to be dedicated to convincing my boss to make some changes around the office as well 🙂 Thank you so much for everything that you do, and all of your blog posts.

Adopting waste free living involves so many aspects of your life, it may become overwhelming at times, but once you pass that hump and have your system down, you'll unleash a whole new world -it's like taking the red pill (The Matrix movie) or removing blinders.

    I started reading your blog a few months ago, and it really inspired me to try to take steps to be less wasteful. It's a little difficult because I am an 18 year old college student, and waste is everywhere. However, I helped push for my dormitory to compost food waste more often. We even removed the disposable paper towels in the bathrooms and everybody now happily uses cloth towels to dry hands. Do you have any other ideas to help myself and my campus be more zero-waste? I am already involved in my college's sustainability club and I am the "Green Voice" for my dorm building.

    Bonjour,

    Je lis régulièrement votre blog, depuis presque un an, et depuis que j'ai lu votre livre, alors en pleine découverte du minimalisme. Depuis, je continue doucement mais sûrement, je me suis débarrassée de quantité d'objets, meubles et vêtements. Le processus est long bien évidemment, car il faut retrouver un propriétaire pour chacun ou bien une solution de recyclage.
    ce mois-ci (mais ce n'est pas non plus une résolution de début d'année – pour ma part, je dirais que cette année a si mal commencé que la seule résolution que j'ai envie en prendre, c'est juste qu'elle soit malgré tout belle – juste un pas que je franchis) je suis allée au magasin bio avec mon bocal pour le remplir de tomates séchées ou bien d'olives. Je craignais un peu les réactions (ce qui me bloquait auparavant) mais finalement, je suis ressortie très heureuse avec mon pot rempli ! Merci vraiment pour votre exemple. Comme ça donne envie, et aussi des idées, et des ailes pour les réaliser.
    Et Merci aussi pour toutes ces sources d'inspiration, et j'aime beaucoup cette idée d'aller nettoyer la plage, tout en en profitant pleinement… C'est gratuit et tellement profitable.

    Dans l'attente de vous lire encore et encore !
