HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!!!! As 2009 begins and millions draft resolutions for the year ahead, Mischa Barton is offering some green tips that  just might help everyone be a little more environmentally friendly this year!  On her site, Barton says:

“The three everyday tips I like for staying green are, one: conserving water around the house. Don’t leave water running for no reason – especially like when you’re brushing your teeth or taking a shower or whatever. Just not to waste water.

Second one is when you go to the store these days, most stores have bags you can get that are reusable and bring them back as long as you remember them – which seems to be my only issue. I think that’s an amazing thing to do. It saves us paper and plastic and it’s much, much, much better for the environment.

The third thing I think everyone should try and do a little more is bike and walk places because not only is it good for you and you get out there but it’s really good for the environment, especially places like L.A. where everyone drives. I have friends who drive hybrids and bio-diesel cars but you know they’re nothing like getting out there and going walking.”

Do you have any eco New Year’s resolutions that you want to share? Chime in and tell us how you plan to be more sustainable in 2009!!
