Interested in greening your life in 2008? Start off by celebrating the New Year in an environmentally friendly way. You can find great suggestions for hosting a green New Year's Eve cocktail party here — or, at the very least, ditch the confetti at midnight, carpool with friends to celebrations, and marvel at New York's own green contribution, broadcast all over the country: This year, the Times Square ball will be covered in LED lights as it inches down its pole, cutting back on costs and requiring only as much energy as would take to run 10 toasters!

You can also choose to make your 2008 resolutions about the planet as well as your waistline or smoking habit. There's a great list of green resolutions here. And here's one more idea — spring for organic champagne to toast with at midnight. Happy New Year!
