It’s time to #TransformTO – together!On February 8, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hey Toronto, we know you care about our city and all of the people that live here… But lately our city’s been under threat from climate change To protect our city and the things we love we need to work together You can help, the City can help, everyone can help…but sometimes it’s hard to know how you can play a role These are four big things you can do to make a difference. 1: Reduce energy use at home, including the amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home There are lots of big and small ways to do that Some of which will also help create local jobs and boost the economy And there are many grants and incentives available to help you save money while you save energy 2: Walk bike or take transit These are the most climate friendly ways to get around the city Driving a low emission vehicle, or carpooling instead of driving alone, will also help to reduce emissions By doing these things we can create a climate friendly Toronto that’s also cleaner quieter and healthier 3: Minimize your waste – including food waste. A lot of energy goes into making and shipping every single item that you buy Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle as much as you can Shop local. Buy only what you need and store food properly 4: Finally, get involved in your community The City of Toronto, many local community organizations, and neighborhood groups are all involved in climate action in Toronto Get to know your neighbors, get involved, and contact us at Live Green Toronto if you want to learn more about how we can #TransformTO together Defending our city from climate change doesn’t require magic — just collective action!
