Living Planet Community tips
For our July contest, we're asking our Living Planet Community what they do to help conserve our environment.
Check out what Parkside Living Planet Community group member wtbfl is doing to help conserve our planet:
"I have carpooled with my husband and friends for the past 7 years. We've saved both money and conserved the environment by only having one car and sharing the ride with others.
In the last three months, I've started taking the bus and then walking home with my friend. We didn't know each other that well before, but once we found out that we lived close by, she start catching a ride with us, which soon turned into us walking seven kilometres home together.
Another thing I did to work towards sustainability is start a bigger recycling program at work. About seven months ago, I inquired about why we weren't recycling paper - we recycle cans, cardboard and water bottles, but not paper.
I spoke with someone at the hospital where I work about this, and last month we finally started a bigger recycling program. We now recycle all paper (i.e. envelopes, flyers, newspapers) as well as cans, cardboard and plastic."
Not only did you save on gas and cut down on carbon emissions, but you also made a new friend - excellent!
