That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Try! And to help you along in achieving your goal, the Melrose Arts District has your back. We took the top eight New Year’s resolutions and found some support right here on Melrose.

BE MORE ECO FRIENDLY

One of the best ways to keep clothes out of landfills and to cut the fast fashion habit is to buy second hand. American Rebel has the cutest vintage clothes – from sundresses to cowboy boots – for the whole hip family.

EAT HEALTHIER

Fresh, organic, and vegan – those are all qualities you want in heaping amounts on your healthy eating platter. Fala Bar is also delicious, so it’s a great choice for Middle Eastern cuisine including sandwiches, salads, and of course, falafel.
