Life In Canada
As a cold northern
country, Canada will be

What Else Can I Do?

  1. Eat A Meat-Free Meal Once A Week! Choose at least one day a week to eat meat-free meals. Raising animals such as cows, pigs and chickens, uses a lot more water and energy than growing grains and vegetables. Did you know that 22 pounds of C02 is emitted to produce 1 pound of beef?
  2. Have A Litter Free Lunch! Pack a lunch where you leave no garbage. Use reusable containers. You can have things that can be composted, like fruit and vegetables.
  3. Express Yourself! Write, paint, draw or make a video – use your imagination to express how you feel about nature!
  4. Share Information With Others! Write a letter to a newspaper or make a poster for your school about what you’ve learned. Write letters to government officials. Encourage your friends and family to take action to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
  5. Most Importantly…Don’t Get Discouraged! Every little bit helps! Individually, our actions may seem small, but collectively we can have huge impacts. For example, if every home in Canada replaced one 60-watt light bulb with an equivalent compact fluorescent light bulb, we would annually save $ 73 million in energy, reduce GHG emissions by 397,000 tonnes, which is equivalent to taking 66,000 mid-sized cars off the road for a full year.
