Martha Stewart Wants You To Help Change the World, One Simple Step at a Time
Even tiny changes can have a huge impact on your health, your home, and the environment.
If you're one of the lucky few who have kept up your New Year's Resolutions this far into the year, kudos to you.
If not, Martha Stewart is here to help you start anew. But instead of asking you to improve your life by cutting carbs or sugar (the horror!), she’s asking you to join her and lots of others in a campaign to #ChangetheDay.
The Change the Day campaign, which launched this month in Martha Stewart Living magazine and at MarthaStewart.com, is designed to teach people to live cleaner, greener, healthier, and happier lives by adopting a new habit each month. And the best part? Making a significant impact couldn’t be easier.
Every month, Martha Stewart reveals a new initiative focused on issues such as clean water and energy efficiency and suggests an actionable pledge readers can make to help “Change the Day.” April’s focus is on curbing waste, for example, so readers are asked simply to adopt a low-waste lunchtime routine—meaning limiting things like straws and plastic bags. (Scary fact: The average American generates about 5.7 pounds of trash per day.)
In May, Change the Day will tackle energy efficiency, with the goal of each reader swapping one incandescent light bulb for an LED one. And in June, the focus is on something that’s near and dear to our hearts: ocean conservation.
We’ve already proudly made our first pledge to #ChangeTheDay, and unlike one or two of our New Year’s Resolutions, it’s a promise we plan on keeping forever. Will you join us?
