Happy Earth Day

To celebrate this wonderful day, I've included a list of things everyone can do to reduce our carbon footprint. Are you currently doing any of these things or plan too? I'd love to know!

• Plant a tree in your yard

• Grow a vegetable garden 

• Grow a herb garden 

• Have plants inside your home 

• Plant a bee garden with fragrant flowers 

• Use a compost bin at home 

• Use food scraps to cook with (broths, stir fry etc.)

• Purchase food locally and think sustainability 

• Cook plant based meals or try have Meatless Monday 

• Unplug electronics when you're not using them 

• Use energy efficient light bulbs

• Ditch plastic and use eco-friendly reusable options such as straws & water bottles 

• Use reusable bags at the grocery store

• Switch to paperless billing for bank statements, cell phone bills and other bills

• Make your own cleaning supplies 

• Create a home recycling system 

• Turn recycled materials into art

• Recycle old clothes during the Textile Pickup or repurpose them into something new 

• Pick up litter in your neighbourhood

• Use less water, shorter showers, turn off the water when you brush your teeth etc. 

• Walk more, drive less

AND Don't forget to ask your Realtor to email you listings instead of printing them off each time, they just end up in the recycling bin, or worse, the garbage! 


Let's make Every Day Earth Day!
