Realistic resolutions for 2021

The header says, "realistic resolutions." Underneath the header are a pink, green, and yellow sticky note icons that have resolutions listed on them.

Goodbye 2020, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

With a new year here, some might be welcoming a season of self-growth. Others may be too exhausted to even entertain the idea of resolutions. At the Haz Waste Program, we’re somewhere in the middle of the “new year, new me” spectrum. So, we came up with some realistic resolutions to share with you. 



  • Change out of my pajamas on my days off.  
  • Have a spill kit and train employees to use it when needed. 
  • Pick up when my boss calls, instead of setting my status to “away.”  
  • Label any hazardous waste or products.  
  • Prevent hazardous spills by using sturdy containers with tight-fitting lids. 
  • Eat breakfast instead of guzzling coffee and calling it “healthy bean juice.”  


We can’t end this post without noting that embracing a “new year, new me” mentality is helpful to some and not to others. We’re trying to keep the upbeat vibes going, and (not “but”) we recognize that the impacts of loss in 2020—lost loves ones and loss of emotional, physical, mental, financial, and spiritual security—don’t end because the calendar year has changed. To those struggling, we see you and we believe in you!  

We’re all going into 2021 more resilient, so cheers to that.
