Stronger, fairer and healthier; my pledge

These are some of the adjectives that fit what we at DPDC are hoping for our nation and our county.
Every now and then, we will be posting blogs in a series that relate to one of these qualities and give some tips on how you can help us get to these goals, together, just a step at a time. In the same way that it came to pass that DuPage was ripe for the election of 17 Democrats where before there were but 2, we can also create a healthier DuPage to leave to our kids and grandkids.

HEALTHIER: 1 in a series of MANY

If you can pledge to do just one thing on this list, we are all on our way.

1) I will use fewer chemically-based products in my home, including home cleaning and personal care products.

2) I will line-dry my clothes as often as possible and try to halve the number of times I use my dryer per week.

3) I will use fewer trash bags and will reduce, reuse, and recycle more so that less unwanted stuff ends up in the landfill.

4) I will consider composting in this upcoming season.

5) I will stop using plastic bags at the grocery stores. I will keep reusable bags in my car and hang a reminder on my rearview mirror so I will see it before I get out of my car.

JUST ONE! We'll post a few more to try in a few weeks!
While you are in the pledging mood, why not become a sustaining member of the Democratic Party of DuPage County? You can contribute as little as $5 a month. GO here and enroll now.
