We listen to some of your 2022 resolutions

:16 – We’ve all heard the phrase “reduce, reuse, recycle.” But how often do we actually put that into practice? What if there was a way you could do so every day, while also creating nourishment for your garden that is better than fertilizer?

The process is called composting. You take your discarded food and make it useful. It sounds good in theory but, as with most resolutions, the first question is how do I get started. Long Beach Recycles is going to provide you with all the necessary information to help you start and maintain this resolution. They are offering a free “Composting at Home” virtual workshop on Saturday, Jan. 8 from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. You can sign up here.

14:43 – As a society, we have been through a lot in the last two years. Now, with a majority of the country vaccinated against COVID-19, a new variant set us all back. But with the new year around the corner, a lot of people are looking ahead and making resolutions.

We still have something to look forward to.

In this segment, you will hear a few resolutions from the staff of the Long Beach Post and the community. We will also break down a few ways to make sure you stay on track with your resolution.
