The Climate Can Change

Can we?

 

Measure your carbon footprint 

 

 

#1

 Be energy efficient

Switch off lights, then what is next? Replace light bulbs with compact fluorescent or LED's. Unplug computers, TVs and other electronics when not in use. You can also wash your clothes in cold or warm (not hot) water. 

#2

 Choose renewable power

Ask your power supplier to switch your account to clean, renewable power, such as from wind farms. If it doesn't offer this option yet, ask it to.

#3

Eat wisely

Buy organic and locally grown foods. Avoid processed items or even grow some of your food.

Eat low on the food chain — at least one meat-free meal a day — since 18 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions come from meat and dairy production.: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

#4

Trim your waste

Garbage buried in landfills produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Keep stuff out of landfills by composting kitchen scraps and garden trimmings, and recycling paper, plastic, metal and glass. Let store managers and manufacturers know you want products with minimal or recyclable packaging. 

#5

Fly less

Air travel leaves behind an enormous carbon footprint. Before you book your next airline ticket, consider greener options such as buses or trains, or try vacationing closer to home. You can also stay in touch with people by videoconferencing, which saves time as well as travel and accommodation costs.

#6

Green your commute

Transportation causes about 25 per cent of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions, so walk, cycle or take transit whenever you can. You'll save money and get into better shape! If you can't go car-free, try carpooling or car sharing, and use the smallest, most fuel-efficient vehicle possible.

#7

Reduce Your Plastic

Stop using plastic grocery bags that are harmful to our marine life, What can you do?

Buy a biodegradable Hunt & Gather Grocer Eco-Friendly bag, that doesn't cost the plane
